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:
- ATTACH THE STABILIZER (REAR WING):With the 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.
- ATTACH THE FRONT WING:Turn the fuselage so it is bottom up, position the front wing (with logo down) to thes carf joint. Thread the M6 20 mm titanium center screw until hand-tight. Do the same with the other two screws.
- ATTACH THE PLATE TO THE MAST:Using the (3) M630 mm titanium Torx screws, tighten beginning with the center screw first, then the front and finally the back screw.D) ATTACH THE MAST/PLATE ASSEMBLY TO THE FUSELAGE: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.
