Default Snapped my daggerboard on Gemini - Need Replacement

Was sailing my Starbard Gemini Tandem at the weekend and think i hit something in the water, because the daggerboard snapped in half!
It was a clean break so the knob and the pivot are ok, but need to replace the blade.
I'm based in the UK (south) and was wondering if anyone could offer some advice on obtaining a replacement. Not fussed if its second hand as the board is too.
Any help would be gratefully recieved.

Thanks.

Giles

we had the same problem. the daggerboard is made of massive plastic with no fibers (carbon/kevlar) of any kind. So when you start planing with the daggerboard out, it can not stand the pressure and snaps. i went to my dealer, he replaced it for free when i promissed not to use it in planing conditions anymore :-)
