I did this with a surfboard, and it seems to be holding up fine. The 4 deep nuts-in-plastic-plug is also half the weight of two fin boxes.

mopman you live around jbay? Also have a Rebel I was thinking of converting into a foil board.
No, I'm down in Strand near CPT. You can maybe get Thys to put two finboxes in or try the method I used. Do you have a Uni Foil?

Only saw this now. No, I have a LF Rocket Foil. Also recently got the Airush mini monster 4' 10" version. Didn't have the patience to wait for a shaper to convert one for me, my lack of patience costs a premium.
