    You might want to contact Phil Locker or Dave Bradly at Phil's Foils / Competition Composites in Ottawa. Unless you get very lucky, there is very low probability a board is going to find you from forum postings like this. There is a guy in Cornwall who kind of specializes in selling Laser-ish off brand boats like MFG/Bombardier/CL/Wayfarers that posts all the time in Ottawa Kijiji - this would be the kind of thing he might have in his garage. I'd post a request on Kijiji and Craigslist locally in Ontario.

    Thanks for the tip. For other Sidewinder owners out there, i found a website for MFG sailboat owners with loads of current posts. Search MFG Sidewinder and you'll find it. It seems missing Sidewinder centerboards are very common, and the MFG owners site has instructions to make one.

    Making a board for a SideWinder is fairly easy, you so take on a project like this, you'll learn a lot, which will be helpful for other upgrades or repairs.
