New Supertanker Fin

After a horrifying fin-loss on my 9-8 super old school board, I decided to give the board a new fin instead of just repairing it. I figured it was a good opportunity of experiment a little. So I decided to replace the big D-fin with a more modern hatchet fin.
Scientific analysis yielded the optimum placement of the fin. Yeah right....this looks about right


  1. that hatchet is sweeeeeeeeet.
    is that light wood the pine you used for the alia?
    I'm gonna miss the D fin.

  2. Yeah, some bits of pine from a pallet!

    I think maybe the fin is too big....it is reallly stiff!
