Re: [Airolite_Boats] Re: Sea Trials - Seat Position and leaks
- View SourceI'm rethinking my 10' classic. Maybe it should be a sailboat. Does anyone have experience putting leeboards (versus a centerboard) on a classic?

fits almost perfectly around that, I cut off about a 6" piece of pipe
and cut it in half lengthwise. Then I glued 1/8" foam rubber on the
inside of both halves, riveted hinges on one side so that the cylinder
could be opened and closed, and riveted the buckles from an old
rollerblade onto the other side to clamp it shut. Then I bolted a J
hook onto the tube.
After raising my sail, I just clamp the snotter assembly onto the mast
and hang the boom over the hook with a small loop of rope tied to the
front of the boom.
Works like a charm and I didn't have to bolt anything into the mast.
