A Centerboard Stop

Don Silsbe

Recommended Posts

Some time ago, those of us having weighted centerboards were having a discussion.  We were talking about the various ways of limiting travel, if/when our boats turned turtle.  In other words, how to keep the board from crashing through the c/b trunk.  
Since I’m doing a little spring work on my boat, I was able to photograph the wooden stop I’ve made for mine. It is made of White Oak, and is held in place with eight stainless screws.  It all comes to rest (vertically) on the center seat, if/when the turtle arrives.

I had a hard time explaining it before.  Thought these photos would help.
