This page is all about the Daggerboard

I chose another design than the original Scarab Design, as I thought this would be easier to build

The Daggerboard is build up from 4mm Okoume plywood and Douglas Fir (which is re-inforced with Kevlar fibre cloth)

Sorry I forgot to document the first parts for the actual build

However, for part of the rudder I will use the same system, so U can check here to see the first stages

I filled the daggerboard with expanding foam and closed the bottom end with Plywood

Then put a radius on the bottom end to make applying E-glass easier
