Default RE: Apollo Vs F161

Hi SteveC, I mean the other way round. For upwind work we know we need width at the back for leverage over the fin, but why does the nose have to look like a barn door coming towards you across the water ? Must have a fair bit of aero drag when in the nose up attiude it's designed for. Whats the function of that nose width ? - as soon as the boards up and running the front half is out of the water anyhow.
I'm saying there's anything wrong with formula performance, but Scotty was reluctant to buy something ugly and I think there's are quite a lot of people who agree. One reason my personal width limit is 80cm.
