PY23 Keel Centerboard Info Dimensions

Thanks to Bill Wilhelm of Key West, Fl  we were able to get some dimensions that will help in fabricating a PY23 keel Centerboard.

Bill says:

My center board is 1 1/8" thick x 12 1/2" x 52 3/4" over all. Round with an angle at the top and square cut on the bottom. The pivot hole is centered at 4" from the top. The pennant shackle is 1 1/2" in from the trailing edge and 26" from the top. The 45" leading edge is rounded  and the trailing edge is tapered down to about a 1/4" thick. 

I've broken mine in half before and found it to be of a hollow cavity design with lead shot in the cavity.

Here are some pix from Bill that will help too!

Thanks Bill!

Jim Horman also confirmed the dimensions and also let us know the bolt is 5/8" diameter!
