Default Repairs on a Phantom 320

will start a new thread with my questions ...
as i am looking at a used Phantom 320 ...
it has 2 indents under the board
can these indents be easily repaired with an epoxy like MarineTex ?? or with ??
also, since they are forward of the centreboard, how much do they affect performance ?
especially in really light winds when most of the board touches water
thanx in advance !!!

also - why does centreboard look like it is backwards ??

Joe,
Any surface dents can be filled with Marine Tex, or any epoxy based filler. Even regular lacquer putty
or auto body putty will work.
Fairing in the dents will improve the flow over the dents/dings and might give you a little better speed, but probably not a measureable increase.
In what photo/video do you see the center board mounted backwards?

the centre board is not mounted "backwards"
what happens is...
the shape is "wider" at the base and gives a look i am not used to



regular fins taper back at the bottom - centre boards do not !!:-)
