How many fins

Recommended Posts

Texasguy

Today I saw a 1999 Sunsetter VLX and I noticed that it only had 1 hull fin. There were extra no holes but the flat fin mounting area had enough room for 2 or maybe 3 fins, I couldn't tell for sure, but there was only one fin.

How many fins should that boat have?

My 2001 Sunsetter VLX has 2. At least that is how many there are on there now. :)

Nah, it's always had 2.

A '99 VLX will have two fins. A '98 only had one.

OK, get this. One 99 I saw has 1 fin as far forward as the flat spot will allow and another 99 has 2 as far aft as the flat spot will allow.

Maybe a dealer-man could tell me if fins were an option of some sort.

additional fins have always been an option on the V drives. The earlier ones indeed only came with 1 fin. It's possible they switched to 2 fins for a particular season but that some of those boats only came with one during the transition period...

Depends on whether the boat is male or female... Dontknow.gif

My bad. My 98 is is Sunsetter LX, (no LXI) and it does have three.

Why the difference??
