Default RE: FE160 versus F-Type 148 or 158 for recreational sailing?

Hi Pete. I'm not able to speak to the main topic of your post, but for shallow water fins, I use weed fins with great success.

For me, at 65kg, I can get away with a 39cm Tangent Reaper Weed Fin when I use my 9.8 V8 on my F-Type 148. A heavier sailor would be on the next larger fin for this same sail and the 10.6 V8.

Compared to my Drake 70cm fin, I don't notice much loss in performance when I use this weed fin.
