Hello,

 

Does anyone know where I can buy 3m centre board packing?  It is the fluffy stuff that is used in a Musto Skiff.

 

I need to pack my rudder and centerboard so wouldn’t mind getting a real from a wholesaler.  I've had a good look on Google but no luck.

 

Many thanks

 

James McIntosh

I don't think they make a special product for centre board backing- it's just the "loop" part of  self-adhesive Velcro (or as it seems to be called in the B14 fleet, "polar bear pubes")

I'm guessing though that he's looking to avoid the "chandler markup" and bulk buy from a trade source.

I was looking to buy real and share it out between a few Musto sailors. Otherwise it is about £30 for 4 meters and I will probably mess one lot up fitting it.

 

Thanks for your help though.  Sailboat looks like the cheapest.
