Default Max sail size for 76 Fish

Just wondering what would be the max sail to put on the 76 fish and what size fin to use??
I also have the 86 but its out of action due to repairs
With the 86 I use a 5.7 but noticing the 76 and 86 have the same specs (width, tail, fin size) apart from the length which differs.
Would this mean I could use a 5.7 on the 76 but have the mast forward in the track?
Would this work or am I trying to overload the board too much?
Any advise would be coolB)

Does anybody have any ideas on sail loading between the 76 and 86?

Hi Greenroom,

The largest sail that I could put on my fish 76 was a 5.4 and on my Fish 90 was a 6.9 (but that was really pushing it). In both cases I threw away the thrusters and for the 6.0 used a 28 cm tru ames custom wave fin for my 83 kg and a 23 drake for my 63 kg wife. For the 5.4 I used a 24 and my wife a 19.

I hope this is of some reference for you. If you want my background info and formula for this send me an e-mail.
