Re: Fin vs bulb vs wing keels

Every foil section is different. Some of the production wings just look wrong.
CS called the wing on my boat a hydrofoil. It is larger than any other wing I have ever seen. W/o measuring it's about 6' wide and 5' deep.
I have yet to meet another cruising boat that can out point w/ me and there has yet to be another similar boat I can't catch off the wind.
But that's my foil section. I think Tony Castro did some research.
