Spotz 2 mast angle

Postby Don Lester » Mon Feb 29, 2016 6:24 pm

I'm building my own board for my Spotz2 foil. When gluing in the Tuttle box.

What should the angle ( fore and aft ) of the mast be compared to the bottom of the board ?

I'd focus on aligning the fuselage with the bottom of the board, trying to make them close to parallel.

same as Mossy, I think the bottom of the box have to be parallel to the board bottom line.

I've got a Spotz 2 tuttle in a Temavento board and this does what the others have said. The bottom of the board is flush with the surface of the Tuttle. Well it is after I fine tuned the fit, initially it stood 2-3 mm proud, but was still parallel with board base.
