laminated wooden centreboard was created by bryan g
I have been told that a laminated centreboard is much better than plywood. Has any one made a board if so what woods should I use?

Can anyone tell me who sells this type of centreboard and rudder and how much they cost? as I have searched and searched on the net without finding them, or am I better off waiting until I can afford to buy the white GRP foils that Trident sell?

Hi Rob

Dave Butler of Butler Boats makes laminated dagger boards we paid £100 and Roy Platford makes rudder blades that are really nice we paid £45

Both people are in the year book Dave as a builder and Roy as a measurer.

My girls are more than happy with these and they are alot cheaper than either GRP or Milanes.

Paul, your girls could sail with a brick in their centreboard cas and still beat most sailors out there!
