Sharpening the turn fin. Do you only sharpen one side of the turn fin (right side?). Also do you sharpen the entire right side including the bottom?

I also have a WT257 carb but I have not used that one because it does not have a choke or primer. If I eventually switch to this carb, what are the high an low settings? The engine is a stock G26pum

using a DA-100 or 3w-100 in a boat?

has anyone ever tried to use a 100 cc twin engine in a boat? I was think of building a 1/5 scale unlimited scale hydroplane and wanted to use an engine this size.
