Default RE: North Carolina Windfest

If you want to use your 155, I suggest getting a weed fin from a local shop. I put a 39cm Tangent Dynamic weed fin on my F-Type 148 and use it with a 9.8 V8. It makes a great combination for me (I'm pretty light, so I can get away with a smaller fin than most).

As James mentioned, the walking out for the 50+cm fins is a pain. Having a smaller fin makes a big difference. A weed fin might cost $100, but I don't mind if one of my many fins is treated to a sanding when I hit a sandbar. The longer fins are spared.
