Who says size doesn't matter, 1cm less fin and an extra 2 knots. Ran the same gear last week with the 33 fin and max speed was 35.2, today 37.2 on 32cm Vector Volt. Great 1 hour session with fire fighting aerial tankers landing in front of me scooping up water for 4000 acre blaze nearby, amazing sight.

Here's one of the aerial tankers from a few days ago.

The fire in the Gorge near where we sailed today flared up with the strong easterly winds this evening. The I-84 freeway, the main road through the area, is closed and many homes evacuated. Here's what it looks like from the launch site tonight.

Nice speed Roo for 32cm. fin. What we can see if you go on 23cm? 

It is not good news about the fire.
