End plate at the top of a skiff jib? Trouble with end plates is compared to just extending the length of the foil they add drag for no increase in lift (yes they reduce induced drag but so would just adding to the length of the foil). They only make sense where the length of the foil is limited - eg by sporting rules or physical limits, - F1 rear wings or the max opening width of hanger doors.

End plate from a 5 year old story.

And here I thought it was an awning for the fore-deck. Sheesh, was I ever wrong!

Because we need square top jibs too.

Since the invention of drones, the boys looked long and hard to find something to do with their old fighting stunt kites.
