Default Hydroplane Turn Fins

I need some input on sizes and depths of turn fins for 20 and 40 size hydroplanes. Not outriggers, just sport hydros. I'll be needing to make some so any suggestions are welcome.

Default RE: Hydroplane Turn Fins

I would start out with 1.5" wide by 2.5" long. It's much easier to make it smaller if needed than to start from scratch. Also, be sure to make your bracket angle adjustable and the fin able to kick back if it hits something
