Hey Rob have you tried mounting it up where the mast meets the board so it can be used just to motor out and once on a wave and flying it can be turned off and thereíd be no drag because itís out of the water?

Iíve heard that thereís new efoils coming that will work like this.

I have not tried it yet but I have thought about trying that for downwinders, to help get up on the foil.  The downside is the added weight.
