I have noticed I have 3 numbers on this boat,

Sail number, but presumably the Sails could be from any boat,

a number burned into the wood inside the boat, this is 3 thousand less than Sail number,

their is also a number on a plastic plaque, which also contains a mould number,

which is probably the correct number ?

Almost certainly the burned number.

Does anyone know the name of the rubber block that provides friction on centreboard ?

It is usually a bit of hose pipe!

'friction brake' rings a bell as a name.

Their is a track across top of transom with a bracket that can be moved from side to side, pulling a piece of string, this can be locked in position with clamcleats.
Would you use this all the time even on a small pond ?
I am assuming this is a performance enhancing device.
20 years ago you didn't becasue even then you controlled the leach tension with a powerful kicker

the track is there becasue the rules require it especially with the high tiller port transom pattern

the car used to be locked in the middle with rivets .

Thanks mph,
I have adopted number burned into thwart.
I think the car is already riveted in place, I have now fitted a 16 to 1 kicker, next job is to convert to centre/aft main.
