Default 1/8 scale bud boat

Attached here is the new turn fin with custom machined mounting bracket and also my new rudder. The stock rudder bracket was milled so I could install the rudder from Speedmaster.

WOW!!!
Been a long time since I've seen anyone on this thread.
rcizlife, you have to remember, the people talking about their Budweisers had either made or modified many of the metal parts on their boats. What that COULD mean is whatever angle they had the skid fin at may not work you your boat. Since I race scale nitro boats, including the one shown on my avatar, I see fins mounted with many different angles. I would install a fin angled at 15 or so degrees and see how the boat reacts. If the sponson is pulled down too much in the turns, reduce the angle. If the sponson lifts off the water too much, increase the angle. This is the best way to fine tune any fin to the boat it's mounted on
