Its versatile, but particularly for a Tuttle mast, its not an appealing solution - unless you keep switching between different types of mast.windfreak74 wrote:Hello Rev,
the plate looks like it is the tuttle box adaptor!
aparently you will always use the plate for the tuttle masts.
it seems that the big box like hole is to acomódate the tuttle insert sliding front to back.
its a adjustable plate tuttle adapter.
if you use a plated mast you wont use the Camet adaptor.
thats what i understand forom the pic.
very good blending of both systems!!
universal if spacing distance is equal for plate mounts ex( 90mm between hole).
What about us weirdos that like to mount our foils on twin tips ? I think there is or will be a significant amount of us ..cglazier wrote:The plate was used back in the early days when nobody knew what board might work. I expect the plate mounting will disappear because:
1. It adds unnecessary weight both in carbon and bolts
2. It makes the board less streamlined underneath
3. It is more difficult (expensive) to manufacture
4. It is more difficult to pack when travelling
The Tuttle box seems to work fine and is widely used. Alpine uses something they call a f box which looks to me like a squared Tuttle type of shape that uses one bolt. Is this the same as what Taaroa calls the "Pro Box"? Perhaps a new standard will emerge which would be great.
For comparison can you imagine windsurfing if every manufacturer had their own way of attaching their sail and mast to their board (actually they did in the very early days of windsurfing).
