Re: Waring on Foil Mount adhesive

Im pretty sure foil mount uses 3m VHB so, yes...I would argue this post is somewhat relevant.... Interestingly this was not my first attempt. The first time I mounted the foil on the last two holes with the adhesive. It peeled up due to some rocker...this was somewhat anticipated...so mounting it fu...

Re: Waring on Foil Mount adhesive

Here are some images of the setup. I mounted the foil to the rear of an old moses board. I do prefer foils as far back as possible. You can see the large mounting plate similar to the one that I was using. Anyhow, the ring was the failure point on the redundancy....not sure how that much force could...

Mounting surface size?

The foilmount spreads the load over a large area. If you used the same adhesive only on the foil mounting plate, the area would be much smaller, and the stresses much higher.
Good point. It divided lengthwise so it decided to shear long ways.

Waring on Foil Mount adhesive

Secured my foil to a board using 3M VHB - pretty sure its the same stuff for the foil mount system...held up great for several long sessions... Today It tore loose on a wave and scuttled my foil - to the bottom it went... I even had a stainless wire cable as a redundancy - broke it clean off.... Loo...

Re: Hydrofoil Videos

Good review of the Onda. Now that Ive had several sessions on mine Im going to say its not the be all end all of foils...there are always tradeoffs...for example the Onda wing floats and causes the whole rig to stick up and you have to body drag back to it in spill, it can be slow....but in an inter...
