Naish 17' question
« on: May 16, 2011, 10:04:43 AM »
I have been looking at the unlimited boards lately
The Naish 17' looks like a great option for flat water and coastal runs. low rocker.
I have a question about the rudder set up, any other options for the fin.
I need some weed shedding & the dagger fin does not look like it will shed weeds at all.

Is my Only option have a fin box installed?
Does naish have any other fins?

Naish do not have other shape rudders (that I know of) .. and someone here fitted a fin box on their 17' Glide without any problems.

If weed is a problem for you.. you just have to stick on one of these weed gaurds.. I'm sure they would make a big difference.

The Naish 17 is an awesome board.. I love mine and every time I paddle it I look down and think 'Wow' ..  ;D

thanks DJ,
Hey what do you think of the Naish 17 compared to the Jav for flatwater speed?
