Re: O'Day 17 ft Daysailer I centerboard help?
If the remainder of your centerboard is otherwise sound it could be repaired with epoxy & glass cloth. In the picture it looks like it is just missing a hunk of material.
The broken edge just needs to be beveled down to 10:1 slant and new material can be glued on.
When you ask about a "handle", do you mean a tiller?
It's kind of hard to say. It's mostly hollow with two bits of re-bar. So, i'm not entirely sure on that. And when i say handle, i mean the lever for lowering and raising the centerboard. I can try to get more pictures tomorrow, if that would help.
