Can someone help Al with this problem? The centerboard on my
first-generation P14 (1967) is almost certainly different from the one on a
1984, and I didn't measure mine. I suspect the CB didn't change much after
introduction of the Mk II in the late 70s, but I don't really know. Maybe
someone with a 1984 P15 knows the dimensions for Al's CB. My guess is that
a new CB from IM would work.

Dwyer Masts <> could make a P15 mast for you if
they have the info. I don't know how their price would compare, but they
are in Connecticut, so shipping should be less.

Sorry to hear about your accident, Al. Hope you'll tell us about it. We all
make mistakes, and sometimes we can learn from each other's.
