I'm very interested in their design , the possible use of modern composites from boatbuilding, as well as discussing the form and function of fins on paipos.




The long fins (18 inches) give a fair amount of forward drive but interestingly they have to be 'aligned' with some *mysterious forces* on the wave face before they take effect. That is, the feeling is a bit squirrelly until it sorts out / balances itself and then it goes, but it wastes time balancing itself. They didn't really give the effect I was hoping to achieve. But I will try them on bigger waves tosee if they work better there.
