Hello-

 

  After a 25 yr. hiatus from the sport, we thought we'd get back into it. I'm having a bit of a time finding a turn fin for an outrigger hydro.

 

I need a source for one for a JRX 45 flat plane hydro. Dick Tyndall tells me he's all backed up with work now, and Randy Rapedius doesn't do

 

any for nitro anymore.

 

Could someone please help me out here?

 

Thanks, in advance.

 

tim

You could get a JAE 45 turnfin from zippkits.

Thanks, Paul...was considering that option, or an AB Eagle SGX, too.

Zipp is a good option,CMDI doesn't work well with a Jae and  Mike made me a turnfin for my Jae 45 that is my first choice. Gill

other option was David Preusse for JAE 21/45 turnfins, not sure if he is still building them.

Mike's turn fins are top shelf. I've used his 20 and 40 sport hydro fins, and they will make Phil Thomas's hulls turn like outriggers.

Here you see a comparison of the 3 turnfins for a JAE21, probably the same as for the 45 turn fin.

All the turnfins will work but from what I've been told the Preusse fin is a better fin for rougher water......

Just something I whipped up for a local boater. He needed a bracket also. Made him an adjuster as well. Spent the afternoon in the shop last saturday. Gave him some pointers on how he should set it up.
