My mate tony got a 2sec peak 27knts on his old Bic techno 283 150l 69 wide
so now we are wondering if 30knts is available?? As a bit of a lark/challenge
it was gusty Bribie passage rough chop. 7m gun gsr sail 90kg
board had been modified for shallow water work tri fin set up
we were sailing deep water but still had the tri fin setup
whats thoughts on getting this old beater to 30knts??
Chop the turned up nose off?
add cut always?
go back to single fin?
of course wait for a flat water opportunity = Burrum Windfest
anybody got speed figures for the techno?
Hey Jeff, I reckon with flat water and enough wind you will get to 30 pretty happily. I have a mid-nineties F2 Xantos 310 and have managed 34+ knots in the right conditions. The nose was chopped off to decrease the chance of damaging the sail, the bottom given a cleanup and sanding but otherwise, it is the original single fin. I don't know how the two boards compare side by side, but I still reckon Burrum should see that 30 done and dusted. Have fun!
