Re: Dagger Board Slots
- Hi Dennis, A couple of approaches you might consider. First, if you
are glassing the bottom, is to fold the glass into the daggerboard
case covering the end grain. The second is to use the technique
illustrated in the Gougeons book on boat construction. I'm not sure I
can explain it however. Cut the slot leaving a gap between the case
and the hull bottom stringer. Set the case in place and then fill the
gap with epoxy with silicon filler. The trimaran I built years ago was
done in this manner and nothing was going to damage that joint. I also
glassed the insides of the case before installation. I never never had
a centerboard case leak.
