Foil Shinn mounted on a North foil board?

Hi. I'm wondering if I can adapt a Shinn foil to a North foil board like the Whip Hybrid foil. Thanks in advance for your help.


Cheers

Carlo

If the bolt fixings are 263mm x 90mm apart then yes you can, I am sure they might be, (well the shin is at least)
but I think the bolts might need modifying, the shinn mast fixings are unique and might not be any good for the North, but if you have a garage full of spare bolts and nuts/washers you should find a fix.
