Default RE: Hatteras and Fins

Gang,
After getting skunked Sat-Wed, on Thursday we got 20 mph or so and then Friday 25-30 WOOHOO.
On the fin issue, I have a Reaper 42 but at my weight and the Palmico Sound depth, it was a no go. Ocean Air (formerly Windsurfing Hatteras) set me up with a GSport 32 weed fin which worked great, but I had trouble fully seating it. Any sandpaper grit suggestions? MA_Pete, I was probably sailing with you. I sailed with my friends who were at Island Star, and was one of 2 folks on the water with a Hucker sail (pretty distinctive graphics) at least on Thursday. With the 25-30 on Wednesday I rigged down to a 5.4 and was still overpowered!
