the futura 144 was 79 cm and with a 48 cm fin - to my understanding
this is usually a GREAT fin length for sails 8.0 to 8.5
this is what i use and am 100 kilos on a 79 cm wide board
for 7.0 and down i use a 40 cm fin - but a more swept fin than the 48
you can use small sails like 5.5 on these boards, but as mentioned - NOT ideal
when i use a 6-oh on the 79 cm wide board - winds and chop are usually the deterrents !!
wish i had a futura 144 !!! sounds like it is a great light/mid wind board 10 to 20 knots !!!
