It floats! Is that a good thing?

So today I took my centerboard down to the boatramp and launched it :P Alas I totally forgot the champagne!

Bad news is it floats. Good news it it really wants to be the right way up, with the tip pointing down. It's only the bit above the pivot that sticks out of the water.

What to do? I presume it'll be okay, and the buoyancy at the top of the board won't be a problem, as that bit will be out of the water normally anyway, right...

It's incredibly easy to pull through the water, for what it's worth. Leaves barely a ripple on the surface.

Looks like a perfect centerboard to me. Good job.
