Screamer- I made the fin guide based on the fin-size / sail size recommendations on the True Ames fins website for different styles of fin. I.e. I mathematically correlated the midpoint of the recommended sail range of a fin with its size, and used the data from those regressions to come up with predictive formulas. If you look at the spreadsheet and scroll over to the right, you can see the "chicken scratch" calculations that went into the formulas.
