baving,
I'd agree with waiting4wind on this one. Put the nose protector (dry) on the board exactly where you want it. Use masking tape to mask the outline of the nose protector on the board. ...

Bazza,
I owned a F186 and it is a great light wind machine. I suspect that "difficult to control" comment has to do with the boxy, sharp rails on that board. If you get that board going in choppy...

Roger,
Thanks for the O-ring info. Good info! Assuming most vent plugs are the same, I'm going to buy spares and just change them out regularly.

Hi Roger,
As long as you're on this topic, do you know what the correct dimensions of a new vent screw O-ring should be? I'm thinking that I'll just replace all mine as a matter of maintenance, and...

Sam,

FWIW, I have the same 8.0, 6.5 sail combination, and I rig them on powerex 75% carbon masts. I think they're all about 2001/2002 vintage. My 8.0 rigs on a 490/IMCS 29, and my 6.5 rigs on a...

No, i haven't found them yet, but I temporarily "lost the scent". Fiberglass supply has what they call "foot strap screws", so I ordered some, but they're not really footstrap screws - just normal...

newbie impressions

I used the 11'2" UB and the 12'6" Cruiser, side-by-side, for about two hours+ this past weekend. The conditions were flat water (inland lake) and very light breeze. I'm 210 lbs, and I windsurf, but...

Question Fcs

Okay, maybe a really stupid question, but which way do the FCS fins go? The fins are asymmetric. Flat side toward the centerline or toward the outside rail???

Well, it seems to be even more complicated than that! The cargo net inserts were only supposed to come on the tufskin models, which were NOT supposed to have the FCS fin slots. The mast bolt...

Floyd or Roger,
Since this is a "last resort", wouldn't a helicoil work too? You'd just have to change to a machine screw instead of a normal footstrap screw???

Thanks Roger. My X-186 doesn't have any anti-twist devices. I guess that's the problem. The foot straps that came with this board are sorta soft and don't hold shape well. The front strap twists...

PT screws

Roger,
I sorta remember that you gave a source for footstrap screws. I found a thread where you referred to them as "PT" screws. Do you know where I could get some?

In this thread, you recommended the 12'6" over 12' for flat water SUP and a for beginner windsurfer, and I've noticed that you really like the 12'6" from other threads.
What about the 12? ...

Yeah, I'm also interested in the two different constructions for the 12'6" - durability, stiffness, etc.
