Hi everyone,

my first post here. Saying hi to everyone who know me and those how don't yet.

Have a question on my daggerboards. They get chewed up pretty bad in the trunks. I would like to replace the carpets in the bottom part of the trunk.

Do you have any advice what to do and where to get the right carpet from. The one which is in there is very thin.

Go to a hardware store and get velcro that already has the adhesive on it, the peel and stick kind. Just use the soft side, cut it to size and stick it in there.

Not as good as epoxying carpet in, but takes very little time, isn't messy, and is dirt cheap to do. Even if you have to replace it once a season there isn't much time involved replacing it the same way.

Karl, almost was certain you would answer smile

Thank you. Will try it and as it is so easy I will do it before I go to Bay City this weekend.

Uli! Aps sell this white carpet type stuff with adhesive back.
I put this on my infusion and 2.5 years later it's still going strong.
It made the board tight enough that I never had a need to install those stupid rubber things that keep the board up, the board stayed up on it's own. It was a bit tight unless the board was lubed up (that's what she said!) but what you can do is take a razor and buzz it down a bit.
It holds much less sand than regular outdoor carpet and when it does it gets burried so it doesn't affect the board as much.

You'll have to scroll down, to V15 Daggerboard Carpet. Once you click the part number the picture goes away or i would have given you the direct link http://www.apsltd.com/c-2868-v15ruddertilleranddaggerboard.aspx

Thanks all! Got the velcro and also will talk to Dr. Wiz in BC this weekend!

Will stick the rough part on my beams so that the spin sheet sticks to it. Double use!

We can laugh now, but honestly, in 30 years of sailing I have never never had a better fitting, stiffer, smooth running daggerboard trunk/gasket. That said, we would never would have done it this way if we did not have to go to the MKII boards, and I will never do it again.
