Hydrofoils won't fit.

Hi all. I've got some hydrofoils / doel fins that I took off my yam40. I want to fit them to my new to me mariner 25 but the cavitation plate is so thick I can't get them on. Are there others that will fit ? Click image for larger version

can you warm them up with a heat gun so that the slot opens up?

Possibly. I don't know if they're entirely rubber or if they have a metal plate inside.

Fitted a new set this year and they would not fit, so I ran them through my circular saw worked for me

Pretty sure Doel Fins are all plastic. I'd go the saw route rather than heating.

There are others; many mount solely on top of the anti-ventilation plate. Personally, my choice would be the all metal Permatrim (pricy though.) That'll go on if the SE300 (or whatever it is) ever fails.
