    Gonna be a weird season of racing. Get here when you can.

    Interesting I think is that the new boat likes a bit deeper strut than we're accustomed to. Still fiddling with the setup on the LSH version. I haven't started the bigger boat yet. I do like the idea of a Q sized version.

    Don't know if you noticed...but Bucket List Racing has been posting pics of the work being done to the boat they just acquired. Great shots of the under side of the sponsons.

    Nice. They sure have some complex geometry! Makes our boat look like a toy!

    Did you guys ever figure out what shape turn fin to use. Some turn fins are too aggressive (too much inward angle) and really slow you down in the turns. Here is one Brian Buass made for his rigger kit. His rigger works good with it and not so well with the UL1 turn fin. The mount should be adjustable or bendable to find out what works.

    Do you by chance have a spare one of these fins?

    We're using the fin that one of our local club members was making. It's the shape that Mojo sells. On my kids P boat we jumped up to a thicker version of that shape. On the small boat it's basically the mojo fin. BTW, the new small boat is scary fast in LSH.

    Daryl! Of course I remember! You were one of the pioneers. I've learned a lot since then. Haha.
