Default Searching for a skid fin.



Bought a used 32 inch tunnel that's missing it's skid fin. This one pictured is off another tunnel and this is what I need. It's three inches wide at the top. Dose anyone have one for sale or can you tell me where to find one. Thanks

You bought a Prather OB tunnel right? It was one of the few that had the turn fin attached to the right sponson over the center of gravity. It was a Band-Aid fix for a handling problem. That hull came out in the `80's and frankly, OB tunnel technology wasn't too good in those days for RC boats.
You might want to give these guys a shot as they're the people who bought out Prather: http://hyperprod.bizhosting.com/prather_lap_cats.html
