    Roy Stuart has a special on Hot Karls: Buy one for $1 million, get the second half off (but sloppy seconds).

    The 'Thumb' looks very nice indeed,and this sort of shape can take all sorts of fin setups. Due to the long converging rail minimal or no toe in is needed on side fins, although it can be used.

    The only shop I know selling them recommends you ride them a couple of inches shorther than your HPSB. I'm thinking 5'10" x 21" x 2 5/8". So yeah, definitely not quite 10'6" x 27" x N. They're real short and maneuvarable, but apparently have great hold due to the pin tail. As a single fin, they just want to go straight, but the bonzer setup is apparently where it's at. They're actually an old design from 70's that just recently started making a comeback in SoCal.

    Yes quite so except regarding the single fin setup. These shapes turn just as well with a single.

    A look at the partly shaped board:

    Given that these boats ride like a displacement hull, I would think the Cleveland Steamer would fit nicely.
