I thought drag would be heavy as well. The 1st on I had made, we put a center box in just in case I didnt like it...I could ride it as a single fin. With this one, I knew it rode well so I didn't have it put in. When I ride it on steeper waves like we get in BH, I pull the fins back in the boxes...7" basic raked fins are what I use in them.Nice, Eric. I would almost expect it to be a lot of drag with two big fins -- how big are they? Good hold on steeper waves?
