Couldn't tell you, but the  Daggerboard looks a bit thin doesn't she? I'd be scared to put them on the rudder because the boat is not originally designed for hydro-foils and it wouldn't be any fun if you ripped the back off a 49er. Mr. Noble already increases my insurance by 50% if I claim.

I think that you may be better of with a B14 to try foiling on. The wings give you the leaverage and as you are hiking you are more locked in to the boat so should be able to survive the crashes better than standing on the side.
If it doesn't break it's too heavy; if it does it wasn't built right

I only claimed a new dagger-board last season, crew snapped it when he fell on to it when we were doing swimming practise. Cost insurance company 260 (odd) and our premium went up by 300 (DoH!)

How the Hell does that work out

Saying that, our's always pays.... Had a new kite and rudder for a Laser2, mast and Centreboard for a 5000 and centreboard for a 49er in the last 10 years. Not bad really, but was mythed when they said the 49er daggerboard wouldn't increase our premium and half a year later we find out theres a 50% increase... If I'd known then, wouldn't have bothered calling them.

400+ for a 49er foil seemed a valid claim at the time, but I think its only going to be masts and sails from now on to justify any hike in premiuim.

We'll make it ourselves, so it should only cost about 20
