Z, the tuttle wont work. Ive measured my SR250L CB slot at only 18.5mm wide. Back to the cutting board , err drawing board.



Yeah, I thought so too... but all good - I'm already onto Plan C.,, just need to try it. It's a very simple and easy solution that I think might work. My CB slot has a slight taper, from 20.5mm at front to 18.5mm at back of box.

Longest topic in windsurfing forum in years, goes to show the new foiling craze has bought life back to windsurfing finally, its what is keeping the sport alive and kicking with most jumping onboard, was really needed to stop it being lost forever. Live long and prosper.

Foil is just an attachment to a windsurfer... not the other way round :D. The sport is alive and well. There are just different interest groups which is great. The sport will go through phases but is WAY too cool to die... ever.

yesterday we had another 20 knot easterly from 5-9pm. Some went from foil, to slalom fin, then back to foil. And you can go faster blasting in slalom conditions on a fin than on a foil. Guys have GPS speed data that shows it!

i used the BIC KPR formula 170L with 48cm fin & 8.5m Arrows sail... as the broken bit of bolt tip #2 is still stuck in the foil mast head :(

Just goes to show Windsurfing forum users are more versatile, have a bigger vocabulary, but choose to use it more selectively than Foiling forum users??? Basically, filter vs. no filter so you don't have to wade through so much BS :D
