Orca Performance Fin
The Orca-Performance Fin triples the effective rudder area providing a tighter turn radius and sharp crisp directional control at any speed. The larger surface area of the Orca-Performance Fin blocks cavitation better than hydrofoils while adding the benefit of enhanced slow speed maneuvering and heading control.
The Orca-Performance Fin installs in minutes without drilling using the 45M-Clamp kit or bolts directly to the cavitation plate using included hardware. The Orca fin is usually mounted with the fins down but may be installed fins up without modification if you desire less aggressive control. Used and tested on fishing boats, runabouts, pontoon boats, cruisers, ski boats and bass boats since 2002.

I own a 20’ Bayliner Trophy 2002. The steering wandered to the point I was about to sell my boat. After some research I came across this fin. It is expensive for what it is, but it did completely fix all my issues. I highly recommend
I had trouble with my Chaparral Sunseta 210 wandering at slow speeds and abrupt jerky steering at faster speeds. It was a nightmare to load on the trailer. With the Orca Fin trailering is much easier and the overall steering is much better. It goes dead straight at speed with no hands on the wheel. The down side is I lost a couple of mph top end and there is a good bit of water spray in the boat unless you're trimmed just right. The water spray is a pain for whoever is sitting in the back of the boat but it's worth it to not have to make a dozen runs at the trailer to load it.
I had an issue ordering an Orca Fin, so I contacted customer service via email. The reply was very prompt, w/in 30 mins, on a Friday no less. The fin arrived 2 weeks ahead of projected shipping date also, which was a wonderful bonus. The fin was easy to install, instruction were very concise. My boat is a 19 ft skiff which was very slow turning at slow speeds, especially idle. The fin fixed that issue immediately, making me not look like a new guy every time at the ramp. I don’t remember this being a selling point, but the fin also makes the boat more responsive when trimming the engine, requiring smaller increments to notice a response. As far as reduced wake?... couldn’t
say. Does it work as they advertise? Yes. Are the changes made worth $300 (plus the $50 shipping)?... ehhh, for me it was. I’ve recommended the Orca Fin to 3 other boat owners so far, one of those being my mechanic who asked me about it. Very satisfied with the entire experience.
I have a 2001 Milan and it was totally squirrelly at low speeds before I installed the Orca. It handles so much better now. Well worth the purchase if you are experiencing the same problem.
Orca worked great on 225 hp tracker Targa, The bow wandering is gone, product needs to be thicker, It gets bent out of shape and the bolts break off.
