Details

Suitable for 65 Class and other yachts in the 300 mm to 700 mm range. 375 mm length x 65 mm chord at top tapering to 35 mm chord at bottom, with edges fully finished. Clear epoxy/carbon finish.

Use with fin box/mast tube moulding, ref. 338-65. Use fin insert and bolt, ref. INS-65, to connect the fin to the hull securely.

Made with a section specially designed for the low Reynold's Numbers typical of 65 Class and FOOTY class boats. The surface of the fin may have fine air bubbles and other minor faults created during the manufacturing process. We try to minimise these but it is impossible to avoid them completely. Fins that are un-acceptable in our opinion are offered on our GOODBUYS list. For best performance the bubbles should be filled flush with polyester of epoxy filler, abraded, lightly sprayed with primer and re-abraded with 1200 grade wet and dry abrasive paper.

Will this fin fit my boat?

If your boat was built by SAILSetc after 1990, yes. After that time all SAILSetc boats were built with a rectangular cross section fin box of sufficient width to accept virtually any viable alternative fin. This had several advantages – any ‘better’ fin could be used at a later stage – adjustment to the fore and aft position of the fin could be made to fine tune the balance – transverse adjustment could be made to correct any mis-alignment of the fin with the centreline.

If your boat has a fin box that is made to fit the head of the fin like a glove you will need great skill to fit one of these fins, sorry. On the other hand, if the builder has used a fin box similar to the SAILSetc concept, you should have no problem. Further details are given in our FAQs pages – here.
