    Has anyone built a daggerboard?

    If you are on http://www.macgregorsailors.com/ check there. It is a bigger job than I would take on. 🙂

    I haven’t built one but I did repair a big shark bite out of the leading edge. A little resin with sawdust filler to fill the gap and then cloth over top. I’m thinking to build one from scratch would be very difficult to get shape accurate and keep it light enough to lift would be the big issue. I have heard some talk that Roger intentionally made them a little flimsy in case you hit something hard you will break the dagger board rather than tearing the trunk out of the hull.
