Default Turn fins???

I am going to make some new turn fins for my NH. I am wondering what they should look like. Is there any difference in performance between these 2 types???

If you feel that your boat really needs them, I'd go with the one in the second shot.

Why does it matter ,does the second one create less drag?

More streamlined. You really don't need much if any in the water until the boat actually starts to turn. Where and how you put one on can make a difference also.

Let's see if I can find this pic again as we went through this before. It should be 90 degrees to the bottom of the hull nad a little inward of the freeboard.
