Default .12 outrigger turn fins

What is a good size for a turn fin on a .12 rigger and how deep do you run them.

I'm just looking for a size and running depth (bottom of sponson to bottom of turn fin)guy's. I can make one out of .0625 aluminum sheet stock that I already have here at the house.

well when mike sold them before moving to aquacraft it was a perfect size. It is my understanding that the aquacraft fin is the same size.... so i think so....

Hydroracer11g, it really depends on the aluminum. If it's not the T6061 or stronger, you would bend the fin in a corner or two so it would be unusable.

I think that is the turn fin they use on the Miss Vegas. I wonder if you asked in that thread, if you might get a quicker answer. I too would like to see the size measurements of it, so I could try to fashion something on my Lil Rascal to see if it helps to generate a more stable turn.
