Default Easy Vee Turn Fins

I got a set of turn fins yesterday from WHH and the instructions show the fins mounted a 90 degrees from the top edge of the transom at the bottom of the boat.

The instructions from Zippkis shows them being mounted at a 90 degree angle with the bottom of the boat.

Which do you guys think is the best mounting position??

Are you sure? thats totally wrong you should mount them at 90% to bottom of the hull this means when the boat leans in the turn they will be running vertical in the water just like a fin ,if you mounted them the other way when the boat leaned over they would be set at an angle almost like a planing surface and make the boat handle wierd id have thought ?,hope that makes sense .have a look at this it shows the correct way to mount everything on the transom.

Thanks blizard and mart

I was thinking the same as you said about the fin angle when turning.

The WHH instructions show them mounted on an enforcer boat.
