Sailmaster 26 Centerboard Dimensions/Design?

Hello, all.

My brother-in-law just got a 1966 26' Sailmaster, but it has no centerboard. Could anyone tell me how to go about getting the design or dimensions of the centerboard for this craft so he could get one fabricated?

Much thanks!

--David

It may be a Sparkman & Stevens design, if so they were very helpful when I needed to replace the centerboard on my Sailmaster 22 some years ago. Tough little boat, a toronado ripped thru our yard and 8 boats toppled from their stands onto concrete, 7 had hulls cracked open like egg shells and were totaled, the Sailmaster bent her centerboard and suffered a few scratches and a gouge to her hull.
Give them a call

William H. Tripp Jr.
1920-1971
A native of Long Island, New York, Bill Tripp began as designer in the office of Phillip Rhodes.
After service during World War II, he joined Sparkman & Stevens. In 1952 he started his own practice. In 1957, Tripp’s 'Touche', a 48-foot flush-deck sloop, built by Abeking and Rasmussen in Germany, compiled a good race record and gave its young designer a boost in stature. His boats were then built of wood, but the allure of fiberglass soon drew his attention. Tripp conducted his own experiments with the new material and ultimately became a pioneer designer of the era.
Among his many successful designs for production yachts are the Block Island 40, and the Hinckley Bermuda 40.

Get in touch with either the present-day Columbia Yachts, or the Columbia Owners' Association. Bill Tripp was synonymous with many of their designs, they probably either have or know who has the papers.

Thanks everyone for your replies. Forgive my ignorance, please, but is it possible to purchase a "generic" centerboard, or are centerboards generally specific to a particular boat design?

Thanks again!

Type and robustness of the swing keel's lifting/lowering tackle may give you an idea if it was heavy or neutrally balanced.
Question? Are you sure it's missing? sometimes they are glassed over.

Sailstar became Bristol yachts in the 60s, so one of the Bristol owners groups may be a source of information.
