Centerboard Trunk Shimming

Can anyone give suggestions on the best/most effective, LEGAL way to shim the centerboard trunk on a Flying Scot. I have been told that battens have been used for this. I have also been told that other materials are available and may be more effective. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Have a GREAT DAY!

Personal experience: With the boat upright and raised up in one

Personal experience: With the boat upright and raised up in one of those lake-side wind-up lifts, with the board lowered fully, from underneath, I Gougoened in 2 thin fiberglas battens, one on each side, and and got the blade nice and snug when down, only to find out that I then could not get the board back into the trunk. Lesson: The Scot boards are not of uniform thickness, and that old one was thicker about 1/2 way down, than where it exits the hull when lowered. I had to remove some shim material, to allow it to be raised and live with a somewhat floppy board.
