Sword insert holes dimensions

Postby BraCuru » Tue Jun 24, 2014 8:31 pm

Cannot find anywhere but URGENTLY need to know dimensions of the attaching board holes to connect the Sword Taaroa. One of my clients demands to fit Sword to my board.
Would appreciate your help :allbegood:

They use the exact dimensions as the original Carafino.
3.5"x6 3/8"

The Sword mast location is much further back than the Moses. It should be around the middle of the back foot. You should confirm with someone with a Sword. A friend started with the Moses placement and had to move it back 5 times before he could even ride it.

That's a real problem with conversions: when it comes from conversions

On the French Forum, they use 90mm x 165mm

hmm... do you happen to have a link to the French forum?
I'm more inclined to think it's the nice numbers of 90 x 165mm

BTW> does anyone also have a measurement for the positioning of the mount for the Sword, perhaps as relative to the mount point for the Spotz?
