Welcome to the UKWA Home Page Forums Technical Steel Centreboard? Reply To: Steel Centreboard?


I have had a lot of discussions about heavy plates recently. The consensus appears to be that a 2 foot by 6 ” 1/4″ steel plate set into a wooden board and taking in the pivot hole would give some advantage without the disadvantage of making the boat too heavy.
Lot of effort – I agree, efficient reefing.
