Ward's Best Practices for   tuckhed.gif (1671 bytes) Narrasketuck 180/Tuning Guide 3/02

 

Centerboard, Rudder and Skeg

Is there slop in the centerboard trunk?
Do you need all those adjustment holes in the side of the centerboard?
Does it go straight up and down, or is it warped?
Are the centerboard and skeg in line?
Are the foils smooth and fair?
How is the centerboard travel, does it reach maximum dept without exposing the top notch? (Marking the board with a pencil best performs this test, with the boat is in the water.)
Is the rudderpost and steering head tight?
