This fits all 26X models, VERY early models had a different design centerboard with no notch on the top to limit downward travel. If you have one of those boats, you will also need to replace the centerboard hanger and pin assembly prt # 5502-1X0. Domestic shipping is a flat rate shown at checkout.

This centerboard is also available with a white gelcoated and polished finish instead of the standard grey barrier coat. The smoother board is more performance oriented.
Complete centerboard hanger assembly with pin and attachment nut and washer. AmSteel is a 12-strand construction of Samthane-coated Dyneema SK-60 fibers and is an economical alternative to AmSteel-Blue.
AmSteel is a non-rotational rope that yields high strength and low stretch — equivalent to wire rope, but with only 15% the weight!
This rope has a very high strength-to-weight ratio, is stronger than wire rope constructions, yet it floats.
In addition, it's flexible, easily spliced, and resists flex-fatigue and abrasion.

The Samthane™ coating is abrasion resistant, and has different formulations for specific rope fiber types.
The Samthane coating adds firmness and greatly improves wear life.
It also enhances abrasion resistance, reduces cutting and snagging, and helps prevent contamination.
