Default Fin to match my big sail

I have a 2007 Carve 133.
I want to use a Neil Pryde V8 8.5m sail on it.
It will be used on flat (lake) water.
Could you suggest the largest fin I could use for optimum light wind performance?
(I was thinking that as there is a little less float from fresh water that an extra-additional increase in fin size could help)
Thanks

Clive

Hi Clive,

Even though I can't comment directly was would work the best for the Carve133, based on my past experience I've had great luck with my Tectonics Mirage 50cm that I matched up with an older 8.1 race sail. While the focus was very light winds, I always found that it was still pretty rangy and easy to sail if the wind picked up.

Checking out the recommended fin range for the new Futura133, it showed the 50cm on the top end, so it's very likely in the realm of what you're looking for.
