On the solenoid:
S = "start". This is the 12v signal from the ignition switch telling the relay to close (and crank the starter).

CC has been putting 3 fins on their tournament slalom flagship for a long time (1982). That slalom flagship is now their cheapest boat, so I dont think the reason they put fewer fins on some...
