Hi Erik,

The basic geometry of the back section of most modern boards (of this size) have fairly common mast track to tail measurements, and nothing unexpected in the iSonic to cause you to sail with excessive or abnormal rake on the rig.

Dragging a boom (beam) backend in the water is more likely a function of the sail geometry (clew height vs sail's ideal rake angle) - and with no personal experience of the RAM F8 I can't be sure how it compares to "normal" clew height.

Hopefully there is no such problem with the RAM F8 9.9m + iS150 - and you can get a lot of good sailing from this combo.

Cheers ~ Ian
