to cut a long story short, I'm after a replacement daggerboard, anything considered aslong as it doesn't require too much work. Being a student I'm on quite a tight budget so I think anything carbon is out of my price range. Thanks.
It may not be as simple as that: daggerboards are not very often interchangeable, depending on quite how the daggerboard case is constructed - a photo would help. Sometimes its just easier to build a new one. It need not be that expensive, although it is a good bit of work.
