Thanks for the trial of the fins Rog, certainly noticed a difference in acceleration.

Fun fangy session!

Mission today was to test the repaired small Maui boom, it's been in the wagon for a few weeks now waiting for an on shore shallow water 4.4 to 5.8 day.

So I really should have rigged the 6.2, but hoped that the odd gust would be enough for the 5.8.

Plugged it into the 48 with the 20cm @ 40/60, but only did one run with this. Too underpowered for this little fin to develop any meanigful lift. So came in and changed to it's big brother the 23 @ 40/60. This worked much better, had some nice runs in and reasonable gybes, but couldn't line up with a gust to come out on, a bigger board may have stayed on the plane better.

At the end of the last run, as I demounted I lost control of the sail and it hit the water fairly hard, but with a much bigger bang than I expected. I noticed that the sail was now very floppy, the clam cleat had broken away from the mast extender. The only sownhaul now was the base of the sail catching on the extension adjuster. Made a very interesting sail back to base, so yet another repair to do.

Cause of the malfunction, seems to be using stainless bolts and washers on ali tube.

The ali at the bottom screw was corroded and the screw just pulled through the hole, which snapped the clamcleat at it's top hole.

Might have to think of fiberglassing the clamcleats on instead of bolting.

JP Slalom 71, NP RSR E7 7.0m, JP Weed 36cm.

Got down to fangy's late and pretty much got skunked, Shano and myself managed to get a redemption couple of runs when Fangy turned up with the supertanker dictatormobile and it's own private climate zone.

The choice of the 36cm weedy was totaly wrong as it was an absolute nightmare to get going much to the merriment of those on shore.

Not to bad a slap session.

Busted mast rigging at yunderup, being replaced under warranty. Excellent customer service as usual from Jesper. Lost my mojo for sailing alone after that so headed to fangys. 

Without a 430 mast had no choice but to rig the 7.1. On my first run out got hammered by a big squal so decided to head for the shelter of the chook pond. This was a bit more manageable but the fin was a bit big and it kept getting mud stuck to it acting like an anchor. Had a few decent runs but was a bit scared to get too close to the edge in the flat encase I hit the bottom.

Good selection of mobbers, pinnas and OMK to have a chat with.

Good one Max, I thought your gybing was looking much better.

Next time we're together, remind me to lend you a smaller board.
