Thanks TomW - did not mean to wind you up...

Also thought about getting this track box - https://www.mackiteboarding.com/ride-en ... track-box/
Available June 2020.
you can buy that. It will save work. Other option is to buy the boxes separate and get some HD foam and build it yourself. You might save 30-40 dollars if you shop around.
building it yourself is easier that the process of adding stringers and then the boxes. The stringers are not going to replace the need for HD foam anyway.

Im in EU, so i buy BigHeads from EasyComposites in UK. Then i embed 4 of these in HD foam blocks in fixed position. Im riding strapless and know where the foil should be on board, so no need for adjustment.
The Bigheads cost 2.20$ each. So 9$ a board.
You can buy a track box embedded in HD foam from AliExpress for about 20 USD.
Good luck with with getting things from China, 2 months wait so far for foil boxes!
