Naish masts are extruded from aircraft grade extruded aluminum, sandblasted with 120 grit prior to anodizing, then wet sanded with 600 grit to achieve the optimum surface. The result is a strong, stiff mast that also delivers excellent torsional rigidity and has clean release and minimum drag.
The Naish Foil System utilizes M6 bolts throughout.
Remember that foils are utilized in a very corrosive
marine environment, so here are four important tips to
maximize the life of your foil:
It is easiest if you assemble your new foil for the first
time in the order below:
A) ATTACH THE STABILIZER (REAR WING):
fuselage right side up and the foil mast slot upwards,
position the stabilizer on the flat top surface of the
fuselage with the wingtips upwards (you can also use
the countersink on the screw holes to determine the
correct orientation). Tighten until nice and snug using
the Torx T30 screw driver.
B) ATTACH THE FRONT WING:
Turn the fuselage so it is
bottom up, position the front wing (with logo down) to the
scarf joint. Thread the M6 20 mm titanium center screw
until hand-tight. Do the same with the other two screws.
C) ATTACH THE PLATE TO THE MAST:
Using the (3) M6
30 mm titanium Torx screws, tighten beginning with
the center screw first, then the front and finally the
D) ATTACH THE MAST/PLATE ASSEMBLY TO THE
Insert the mast into the fuselage, then thread
(3) M6 30 mm stainless steel Torx screws until hand-tight.
As before, the final tightening order is center screw first,
followed by front screw and then back screw.
