Albacore

Albacore Custom Centerboard

A very stiff layup of s-glass over sitka spruce, with a drag reducing planform. Thickness and layup can be adjusted to your individual needs. For an even lighter board with more feel, request a red cedar core.
We’ve also built these in a variety of custom head shapes to fit old woodies.

We are a proud supporter of the Canadian Albacore class association.

Molded Centerboard

A quality molded product at a more affordable price point than our wood cored one-offs. The mold was cast from a CNC-shaped plug, for maximum accuracy of shape.

28mm max thickness, to fit most boats. Please check your centerboard trunk before ordering.

Hello Phil; 

The twelve centerboards and rudders you provided us with last year (2008) worked out excellent for our Albacores’this past season. The weight and finish were great and it was a pleasure to do business with you. If anyone is sitting on the dock, wondering about the quality and workmanship etc. – – then place your order now !! You will not be dissappointed. 

Thanks again Phil for all your help. 

All the best;

Rudder

A basic rectangular blade, with appropriate wetted area. Nothing fancy, but it will get you around the race course.

Available fixed, or for kickup head (send details of your current headstock).

Hi-Aspect Rudder

A fairly conservative entry into higher aspect ratio rudders, this blade gives an additional 10 sq inches of wetted area (boat control!) in a more efficient package than our basic rectangular blade. The elliptical leading edge and narrowed reduced thickness at the waterline make this a low drag blade that will be sure to please. And its light too!

Available for fixed or kickup head.

Sitka spruce, with a fiberglass laminate (s-glass buildup at the waterline!). This has proven to be a popular item with our Albacore customers.

Phil, 
Just thought would let you know I gave Heather (my wife) the rudder for her birthday on March 20th and it was a huge success. She is extremely pleased and can hardly wait to get it assembled and on the boat. She rewarded me with a big kiss.

Molded Rudder

Our molded rectangular blade, with an attractive price point. Suitable for most 20mm kickup headstocks.

Don’t mistake low price for low quality – we use vinylester resin and both uni and biaxial fiberglass cloth over a CNC milled core of structural foam.
