Hi Joe,
Yes, 38 would be about the limit, but it's only a "rule of thumb".
Nothing set in concrete.
Stance/body positioning could help,
Flattening a sail could help or hurt (depends on how flat the water is, and how fast your top speed
potential is.
So, lot's of "factors"!
The design of the fin can have a significant effect as well.
The Lessacher Duo (Speed and Weed fins with an assymetrical design) can be run much smaller
due to having a bit more area.
Hope this helps,
Roger
