I got the upgraded replacement plates. I see that they are longer to stop the exessive sideways movement of the CB.
I noticed that plates also prevent the board from rotating down as far when fully extended. The stoper cant reach the original deck. The CB is therefore raked back a little more.
Will the few degrees less rotation make much difference going upwind?
The top of the side plates could be trimmed a little to allow full rotation while still keeping the sideways movement to a minimum.
