Winglets (maybe we should call them “finlets”) at the tip of the fin reduce turbulence and drag by preventing water on the high pressure side from swirling around to the low pressure side. Racing sailboats use the same technique on their keels, and airplanes on wingtips. Note also the guard to keep weed and other debris from getting jammed between fin and hull.
