Wooly,
You will need to get some round stock (or some 6mm fin screws you don't care about)
and push them down through the 2 holes in the top of the board that the fins screws
go into.
Then take...

my7thlife,
I've also seen lots of people who are OK with poorly fitting fin roots in Tuttle/Power Box/
Bic/Tiga box....even "A' and "E" box fins.
It takes time to fit any fin to a board, and...

If at the very basic level and still learning "rig steering" then a larger center fin and a ...

Gordon,
Since the Drake shallow 410 may have almost as much area as the Drake 50 cm that is slightly
swept back, putting the 50 cm in front may have no benefit.
But normally, in non-planning...

Gordon,
If both fins are std. Tuttle head (with the 2 screws) and you have enough water depth (i.e. you
may have to walk it all out along ways from shore) then you can use the 50cm in the center...

SpyGame,
A 175 lbs. the Start M might be better.

that works pretty well when...

Hi CTseattle,
Spend the $$ to get a high carbon content mast and an 7.5-8.5 m2 sail.
Look for a high end/powerful recreational free-race sail.
Sailworks Retro comes to mind as it has good low...

Stefano,
I sail with a 32 cm Lessacher duo with 7.5 m2 rigs so the 33 should work nicely with your smaller rigs.

You could switch to a weed fin which is raked back so that when your fin strikes the sand bars or rocks, it will not bring you to an instant stop and throw you and the rig over the front of...

Hi TomOB,
Do you have any smaller boards for when there is wind?
If not, the iSonic 134 may be the better choice as it would give you a
little more top end range, but the Ultrasonic 147 is going...

Steven22,
OK, so it's a context thing.
I agree, when trying to get planing in very marginal conditions, yes to get going you often need to foot off (head downwind) some.
However, to make the...

Actually it sounds like you may have the fin size thing backwards.
