tx for your contribution

you are right, in the basic configuration, the fins wil try to compensate the heel from the saisl which slows you down a lot

if you reduce the nput of the heel (by turning a knob), it then relys only on the acceleration signal; this still reduces rol; but in following seas you see (better feel) a difference: sails down and heel sensor active is more comfortable ...

by the way, I dont see much (any) difference in speed, perhaps the drag of the two lateral steel keels (that I had have removed to place the stabilizers) was even bigger that the drag of the turning fins
