Anybody know where I can purchase a 5" US style fin box strong enough for a single fin board? Chinook boxes only come in 8" and 10".
Thanks in advance.

In all my fin , fin box exploration s I have never seen the mini US boxes. I have tried to find them, so would be very interested if they may be available.

My custom board builder friends in the UK make their own, they shorten from the center area and use a fin for a guide/jig to epoxy back together.

seemed to me the end would be a better location to shorten, but you may have probs with the slot..or not

I went to slot box for my last creations, I would go no longer than 24cm fin on any slot box ........YMMV

For your application I think I would just use the 8" US box, not going to increase the weight that much
