Twin Fins

Postby Mojo » Thu Sep 04, 2014 6:14 pm

Hi Folks,
I've got a Flying Saucer. It currently has a 3ft skeg along the bottom, but I'm thinking about cutting this off and adding a fin to improve handling.

My only problem is the trailer has rollers down the middle and this setup is working well. I'd have to modify the trailer if I was to add a single fin down the centreline. I got thinking about having twin fins, one on each side of the hull. They would each be about 6" off the centreline. This would give me the fins, but they would avoid the trailer rollers.

Anyone have thoughts on this? Would this adversely impact steering and handling?

Cheers
Mojo
