With the tail of iS122 getting wider and wider over the years for maximum efficiency in light wind conditions, the structural integrity of a standard Tuttle box is becoming limited with fins lenght over 55 cm, especially with heavy riders and large sails. So in 2008, iS122 has been fitted with a deep Tuttle box to safely accomodate fins approacing this size limits.

Cheers !
