F5 Foot Stretcher



F5 Dreher Carbon Twill Foot Stretcher:

The F5 Foot Stretcher is light, stiff and can be used with or without a foot plate.  Shoes can be mounted directly to the frame or fitted on the Football Foot Plate (which attaches from the front) for greater ease and speed of adjustment. Originally made for Resolute, the F5 is also used on BBG, Stampfli/Janousek and Dreher Rec-Racer boats.  

The F5 Foot Stretcher (24 cm at the widest and 30 cm long) comes with a carbon cross bar (2.5 cm diameter x 40 cm length, cut to order), a football foot plate, a carbon keel slide, and some hardware (carriage bolts, double t-bolt, nuts, tiedowns).
