Default RE: Formula or isonic 155 for max speed ?

PeterCee,

Although I haven't participated in the gps-speedsurfing rankings, I do look at their speeds on occasion.

I carry a gps on all outings, but haven't tried downloading anything on my very old computer at home.

My best speed on Formula is 27.5 knots on my old F147 a year and a half ago. Off shore winds gusting to 26 knots, flat water and an old Gaastra Nitro IV 7.5, Curtis 68 custom fin.

My goal was 30 knots, but I find it very difficult to get close. I hit 24 to 25 knots pretty often, but 26 & 27 are rare. I can't imagine going 30.

I may not be big enough (80kg) to go 30 knots, but it's fun trying.

Good luck to you.
