Re: Centerboard damage.

Wow!
That is some major delamination going on with your CB.

Be prepared to pay through the nose if your 'yard' does the work for you. Labor rates of $80+/hr are not that unusual.

It might help to know what sailboat the CB is from and your general location (I assume lake, maybe Great Lake?). If you put your boat and location in your signature and profile I wouldn't be asking you these questions.

It is worth looking for used CBs for your boat on CL, Ebay or whatever, but not too likely you'd find a drop-in replacement.

If you are up for doing the work yourself then you could likely make a better than new replacement at home over the winter. Materials should cost well under $500, depending on how you do it.

Good luck with that board!
