Musto Performance Skiff

Daggerboard Upper Gasket Repacking (Ted Mount)

This mod is to repack the case if the carpet wears out. Note that this is standard now on new boats.

 

 

Mode Requires:

If your daggerboard has started lifting on its own it's probably time to repack the upper gasket.

Mod requires:
1m x 3M Foil Liner (available from Ovington Boats)
Sharp knife/scissors
Solvent to remove the old glue (Evostik Glue Remover perhaps)
Degreasing agent (Isopropyl alcohol or similar)
McLube

Instructions:
Rip out the old carpet and remove the old glue which will probably be left attached to the daggerboard case. Don't bother trying to scrape it off, it's tough and will take a long time probably ending up with you scratching the gelcoat. Soften the glue with the solvent (I used synthetic paint thinners) and rub off with an old cloth.
Ensure the area where the foil liner is to be fitted is free from grease
Accurately cut the foil liner to the correct length and fit with the join between the two ends located at the trailing edge
Spray McLube on both the foil liner and daggerboard and fit the board in. It will be pretty tight initially so it will help to leave the board pushed in for as long as possible to both compress the foil liner and ensure it's well stuck to the casing.
