I have halted all work thru them until we get everything straight. The pic is a test bolt I bought.

Moday we launch with new centerboard and modified shoe and pin. Cost 4600 board + 3000 mods. Hope its worth it!

I know this is an old thread, but looking at the construction of the centerboard, and the construction of the shoe/liner. Why not build a positive stop for the board in the down position and eliminate the line used to correctly limit drop of the board? seems like it would be a simpler, more robust system that way. and eliminate another hole in the hull!!

Looking at your image IMG_1213.JPG It looks like you've carried the shoe sides much further up the trunk. you could epoxy and bolt a block that spans the gap across the top, in the right place such that the arm of the centerboard is stopped from traveling down in its arc any further. Not a great explaination. I'll have to draw it up. I'm also assuming that the vertical sides of the shoe extend vertically above the thickness of the centerboard when its fully retracted! The sides should be well strong enough from what I see as the load of the board would be along the length of the sides where they would be strongest.
