Thanks again, everyone, for your generous guidance.

Denise, my brother-in-law is convinced that it is missing. The boat is apparently in need of a fair amount of TLC, and is missing a few items, including the centerboard. He's going to be a grateful man for all of your help.

Denise is amazingly helpful, isn't she?

From the plans Denise posted it looks like the C/B for your Sailmaster is roughly rectangular in shape. If you have access to the C/B trunk on the boat you can even measure the inside dimensions of the trunk. I'd start with a plywood prototype that could be covered in epoxy and cloth or just used to give a metal fabricator.
As Denise also noted it is rather important how heavy the C/B was intended to be. If it is supposed to be over 100 lbs. a light weight plywood, epoxy encased version might not stay down as it should. In that case I'd take the plywood prototype to a metal fabricator and have them make a metal core out of 1/4" or 3/8" stock that could also be covered in epoxy and cloth.
My 27' S&S designed Tartan also has a C/B and is of similar hull shape and our C/B weighs somewhere in the neighborhood of 100 - 150 lbs. I believe.

A plywood version could be made such that some lead inserts were included to add weight where it is needed.

Awww... your welcome and than you for the compliments. I really am just good at cut and paste more then anything. I love boats, missed my calling in life I suppose.. If only I had been born into a maritime family.

We just broke up a Sailmaster 26 and have the steel centerboard as well as some other gear. We'd be happy to sell the CB or provide you with a photo and dimensions.

I know this is a few months later -- but I have also just acquired a 1966 sailmaster 26 and I'm looking for a centerboard.

vtlaser -- do you still have it?

We do have the centerboard. It's made from flat cut steel. I'd be happy to send you a photo and dimensions, if you'd like to build one. We'd be happy to sell it as well, can't use it on our Seafarer 26. We're located in central Vermont.

Since both of us have limited posting abilities, I think it's okay to post an email address (coded to avoid spambots), to make things easier.

Sounds good to me Don.

Mine is my name with the middle initial --no spaces

It's ericrlemay and the domain is yahoo dot com.

Let's start with some pics and dimensions so I can be sure that it will fit.

My boat is a Sailmaster Mark-II. The Mark-II has a shorter keel than the Mark-I and inm not sure if the centerboards are the same. Shoot me an email with your price an we'll weigh the difference for building my own or buying yours. I'm wondering how much it weighs...

Talk to you soon.

Eric
