Add tracking fins?

2011 X-25. Does anyone know if you can add tracking fins? I've seen it listed as an option on 2012 x-25s but I don't know if it can only be installed at the factory or if it can be popped into older boats. I've heard they make a noticeable difference.

I agree. It's not work ripping into the bottom boat.

Does your hull have flat spots where the fins should be?

You know, tracking straight when you are plugging way with 4500lbs of ballast and hitting the killer set of double ups while wakeboarding!! **** is epic!!!

Hmmm… Others have experience with both with and without tracking fins?

I asked because I read a thread some months back indicating the X25 held speed in turns much better with fins than without. If others agree there is minimal difference, then the answer about whether fins can be easily added is irrelevant.

It would be my contention that they do not turn. in any tracking manner. They rotate on a blob of an axis at some 20 MPH +/-.... however everything is relative..... Don't lose any sleep over your tracking capability.

I'd like to read the thread you reference. Link?

I went from a boat with to a boat without. Unfortunately they were two completely different boat's, so I cant reference too much. But, I have been in a 24 mxz malibu with fins and it did power turns like a ski boat!
