Centerboard sheave

Dinghies, day sailers, world cruisers. Many small sailboats make ideal rowboats or low-speed power boats.

Centerboard sheave

Postby Levaggik » Thu Oct 12, 2017 5:30 am

I purchased the centerboard sheave through Glen-L. The dimensions are 2 1/2" in diameter by 5/8" thick. If you take the brass bushing into consideration it measures ~ 11/16" thick. If I add a 1/8" plate on each side that totals 15/16". Then I have to secure a pin through it. The centerboard slot is only 1" wide max. The sheave, side plates and pin will not fit in the centerboard slot. Was I sent the incorrect sheave? Do you have a sheave that is 3/8" or max 1/2" wide?
