Transom flaps and centreboard gasket
Just finishing off my winter refrubish of my old Proctor 9b. Need to replace the centreboard gasket and wondered if staying with the sailcloth is nest or going mylar? Any thoughts?
Try Speed or P & B for Flp material. Sailcloth gasket lasts longer but make sure yourlength is right-old boats generally have longer boards
Thanks Chris, is 2 metres enough for an oldie?
I think so- the rules state that the plate mustn't be longer than 1400mm below the keel and I guess you need to add a bit for the bit that remains in the case
Puchased 2 sheets of Lexan(polycarbonate)1mmclear 297mmx420mm(A3) size from GPG Plastics Ltd through Ebay - cost with p/p
I have just replaced my slot. Bought sail cloth from P&B. One long length, screwed the two ends down at the bow end of the slot, then tightened the loop using a block and tackel fixed to the rudder pintles.
