...again...it is a 2 fore member.

yes the SM lower is for boats that can benefit from a higher x and you still an extra 2" of skeg in the water for control. they are to gain...we are using them for a loss (speed that is).

maybe all the people here that have the answers should get with some F2 and SV teams...hell,,,it sounds so easy,,,,maybe you could have a sonic kicking our ass by then???

I'll bet a Sonic could kick your ass with a broken skeg. Even if I was driving it.

crashing is part of racing...why would it be a "humbling incident"....chances are this is not going to be the only time we bust some stuff up.

the new sonic will be ready for savannah....looking forward to seeing what they can do with and wish them all the best....this time around they are building it with RACING in mind...i guess we should just let the results speak for themselves...

How is it possible to determine which happened first? Or what caused what?

Normally the skeg breaks as the result of the spin. We broke the skeg off a #6 when we spun then ultimately flipped our cat in Key West. Not saying that is what happened to audacity, but this was the information that was give to me after the accident because the first words out of my mouth were "the skeg broke that is why we spun, it wasn't MY driving."

It is my understanding that unless otherwise struck by an outside object, a broken skeg in this type of scenario is more often than not a function of a spin not the other way around.
