    centreboards supplied with the factory-fitted deck stopper the stopper shall

    not be removed or modified. Any adjustment required to the extension of the

    centreboard shall be achieved by bonding a hard shim to the top surface of

    with the factory fitted stopper shall have a deck stopper fixed in the head (not

    the horns), made of a material strong enough not to bend under racing

    conditions and shall be firmly fixed in place."
