Default Picture of fins on the GO 155?

Is there a picture available of what the fins look like on the GO 155? I can't find a graphic showing them. No sure what a Shallow 410 is or where it is located. Does it allow you to go upwind in light winds like a daggerboard?

Hi rbhines,

You can use the 41 in the middle for beguiner to go up wind. As soon you know how to get planning, you don't need it execpt may be in the back for shallow water.

Hope this help

All the best

Remi: Thanks. That was the answer I was hoping for. We windsurf on a lake in Northern California where you have to go upwind through a narrows and its pretty tight. Is there a picture available of what the fins look like installed in the board?

Another question. We have the Chinook mast universal joint that fits 2004 Naish Titan and 2004 Mistral Explosion. Will that work in a Starboard GO 155?

The "shallow" 41 Drake is a normal Tuttle Box fin. 41 cm deep and pretty wide to get max power out of it. There's no centerboard option in Go 155. At least not in mine Go 155

Here's a picture of the "cleaver" style fin.
The photo is from the 2002 Website archive.
http://2002.star-board.com/products/start.asp
The fin in the photo is a 40 cm, but these fins have beens supplied in 33 cm; 40 cm;
41 cm; and 43 cm.
All of the cleaver fins are basically the same shape (minor changes in the radius at the
juncture of the leading edge and the tip, but basically the same).
If you look at the GO board section of the 2002 website archive:
http://2002.star-board.com/products/goacc.asp
you will see the 33 cm Drake Ames version of the cleaver fin, and also the GO side fins.
Not sure if your GO 155 has the side fin inserts, but earlier model GO boards all had the provision to attach the side fins for sub-planing early beginner sailing.
As far as getting out the inlet on your lake, learn to tip your board upwind and carry the rig a little forward of vertical and you should be able to get upwind fairly easily in sub planing mode.
You Chinook bases should fit, but you may need the brass T-Nut to extend the length of the threads to accomodate the thicker EVA deck material.
Hope this helps,
