Greg, Thanks for the picture gallery. What a great job you and friends are doing! I really liked the photo of the mast in your house...true dedication! I wanted to let you know what I have just seen on my Sailmaster 22 centerboard. I am repairing my boat. Last Columbus Day a wicked storm hit the Seacoast of Southern Maine/New Hampshire. New Castle Coast Guard recorded 84 knot winds. My boat broke mooring and ended on the rocks of Pepperell Cove, Kittery, Maine. Very unforgiving.
The boat is OK but has a huge hole. I drop the board for inspection. I noticed 18 inches from the bottom of the centerboard, screwed on each side of the board a small piece of white plastic(nylon) measuring 5” long X 3/4 “ wide X ¼” thick. It is mounted 30% angle to the leading edge of the board. It appears to serve the purpose of ‘guiding ‘ the board into the well when the centerboard is pulled up. You might already know this. I believe this board is the original (Hull 113).
