Foil adjustment

Post by rand » Tue May 29, 2018 3:56 pm

@koenraadvds asked about foil adjustment on his B3.

Here are images of the foil adjuster on my B3:

The purchase totals 10-1, which is mostly for fine tuning your adjustment rather than how much force you are trying to overcome.

Thanks!

This is helpful. My control line for the foil runs to the frontwing on the rack. We'll have to use more elastic rope as you do to make te foil come back. Because of the friction on the blocks, the foil doesn't return anymore now.
