Evening all,

Headed out on my maiden voyage in my new 7 at the weekend. Had a few issues extracting the daggerboard whilst hurtling towards the shoreline which wasn’t the greatest.

I had a reasonable amount of rig tension on and quite a bit of the slot gasket fluff has fallen off but has anyone else had a very stuck daggerboard and if so are there any general tips on how to resolve this? 

Cheers,

Simon

Happens to me sometimes, Just spray the top half of dagger board with plenty of sail lube.
 
Good luck

Hello
I had the same problem a few years ago on my 700. I solved the issue by sanding smoothly the bottom of the case (fine grit water sandpaper), after checking the points of contacts between daggerboard and case.
