Im in the process of making a short and wide traditional fish come bonzer come quad.
Can someone help with fin placement for
(i) Bonzer 3
(ii) Quad thruster fins
17 1/2 nose
17 1/4" tail
12" pod - diamond tail
WP 4-6" forward
Thought I would shape it as if I was making a bonzer then at the last minute apply well canted quad fin setup.
Any help on fin placement would be great.
hi trim !
so , just to clarify …
it’s going to be a fairly stubbie diamond tail , shaped as a bonzer 3 fin , yes ?
will you be putting in the DEEP double concaves that design featured ?
"then at the last minute apply well canted quad fin setup. "
so, extra plugs / boxes to allow the quad option …is that the idea ?
[in effect , allowing SEVEN different fin placement options?]
I just needed to check I read this right .
You will see I have “resurrected” a thread of ZoSurf’s [Super stoked on Swaylocks’ ], where he had a similar plan shape with multi-fin options , which I trust may hopefully be helpful ?
For you to be able to ride your intended design as a quad only , you would obviously need removable bonzer3 runners…boxed or plugged. Can be done. But the deep double concaves for the bonzer design , combined with four fins , I don’t know about . [Was it Mike Eaton that did that design ?]
I hope you go ahead with this …
it is certainly a fin setup I have not contemplated on my boards [ at least, not with the deep bonzer concaves]
Also, as I mentioned in my ‘p.m.’ to you , there are some useful quad fin templates and positioning recommendations on ‘oldy’s’ thread ‘quad fin templates’ , recently.
okay , I hope this is useful to you mate [and that I interpreted what you wrote correctly?]
