Dagger board offered for sale

Mac 26M refurbished dagger board for sale.

Dagger board for sale

This is an original Mac 26M board that has been refurbished. The internal structure has been inspected by endoscope and appears to be sound as there is no evidence of cracks or damage to the central internal stiffening spar or other parts of the outer skin or bonded edges. The repaired area is not structural and does not appear to effect the performance or strength. There was one area of the surface skin towards the trailing edge that had some damage which has been filled and made good but is still visible. The outer board surface has been rubbed down to the original gel coat and epoxy coated using Blakes anti osmosis two pack epoxy and the end 40cm or so antifouled with Blakes Tiger plus. We used this dagger board for a couple of months last year whilst I built a mould and made a couple of new boards.

Well done Keith, the race is to the swift ! If anyone else has a spare 26M daggerboard, any condition, please let me know as mine is completely gone and the season is looming. I am happy to arrange collection anywhere in the UK.

Best wishes to all.

Hi Duncan,

Hi Duncan,

I’ve made this offer before but a reminder might be in order. I travel over from the USA fairly frequently and as an airline employee I don’t get charged for odd sized or heavy items. So if you find a board in the USA I might be able to bring it over for you.

Before I finalize the offer though , let me know the dimensions and weight in case it’s not practical.Smaller stuff isn’t a problem

You’d need to have it shipped to my home in Pennsylvania and then I’d ship it to you from Scotland.

Regards

Hi Leigh,

Hi Leigh,

I can answer for the size and weight - the dagger boards weigh about 13.5 Kg (there is 0.5 kg between some) and are 1.8 meters long and 0.4 m wide (50 mm thick) plus of course any packaging needed to keep it from damage.

The back trailing edge is quite thin and susceptible to damage if dropped on its edge.

Judging from the immediate responses to my advert there is a real demand for a source of spares.

Regards Mike - Tarka 26M

Hi Mike ,

Hi Mike ,

yeah, thats doable. I’d just bring it over in whatever it was shipped to me in. I’m not going to be able to give a dependable regular service but if speed isn’t an issue in can bring some over one at a time every few months. I doubt there’s a huge supply of used ones in the USA as they’re consumable products. I guess they do show up occasionally.

Anyhoo, the offers there if it helps v

regards

Leigh
