Hi all,

I am looking to plug up the centerfin (Power) box in my board if I want to use the board for planing rather than beginner sailing. The easiest would be to have a beat up fin that I could just cut off and end up with a perfectly fitting plug. Unfortunately, I don't have any of those lying around.

Does anyone know if plugs/adapters are available from anywhere? Otherwise I am thinking of shaping something out of balsa and then glassing over it and then inserting a nut. But that's a lot of work and I'd like to get advice on an easier option.

Obviously, if somebody has a wrecked fin lying around, I am happy to pay for shipping! Would put it to good use!

Thanks. Nikita.

Bondo and saran wrap- stuff the box as full as possible with bondo- using the plastic as a barrier.. it'll cure in 10 minutes- pull it out- add the nut - then wax the plug- put it back in and shave to fit the bottom... easy as cake!

Contractor's aluminum tape will stick to bottom of boards more than 10 sailing days, if the board bottom surface is clean.
