With the bulb still on the fin...

fin= 102g
Bulb = 2998g

1120000/2898g = 386mm

The fin is set in the bulb 10mm so I did the test @ 396mm to be as close to the actual test

Fin deflection - 22mm

Yes, your boat has all specs to be very very fast. I would be very curious to race vs your boat! ;) ....When?!

Hi ,

Not sure when we shall race as things are hotting up with the next Cup.

I'd say, if there is a difference in speed, it would be minor.
Once you have achieved the best stats, then its down to tactics & Luck!

Cheers, Jim
