Wander Lust! Does you boat have it?

Posted by Richard Bogert on

When I designed the ORCA FIN for my own boat, I wanted to have control at low speeds and I wanted some help with the trim. I found out that WANDER was a real issue for a lot of people. The ORCA FIN really helped. Check out the video done by one of our customers. https://youtu.be/OFfZxrbBMBk
