Re: Adding Hydro Foil to Yamaha 8 HP 4 Stroke on 27 Catalina

I had a fin on my 16 foot heavy fishing boat. When it was rough, planeing speed was too fast. At about 10 to15 MPH, without the fin the bow would be way up in the air, making it hard to see. The fin solved the problem completely, the bow would stay down at any speed. Not sure how it would work on a displacement hull? One way is to try it, they are not very expensive.
