I was considering your second suggestion, or buy and old SUP and trim off the front, re-glue.nixmatters wrote: ↑Wed Jan 06, 2021 9:14 amTry Haytex, they might have some leftover short runs

Your other option for starters is a cheap or even FOC warranty SUP. Plenty of such due to failed glued seams.
Cool! What fin size do you use in the new finbox? And what's the longest one you've come across?RTL78901 wrote: ↑Thu Mar 25, 2021 7:42 pmfluidity, I like you idea of making rail attachments with a 3-d printer. I modified an Isup (for use with my Iwings) by adding an Air-7 finbox and some rails made from a material I found at Home Depot. I used 3m 5200 Marine Adhesive to attach them. I could stay upwind quite easily, with just the center fin, but I think the rails to help with upwind and speed.
Does it take a very expensive 3-d printer to make the attachments you printed for your f-one?
Answer is no. I used TPU filament and most 3D printers will work so long as the path from the filament drive wheel is within a couple mm maximum of the feed hole for the filament otherwise it will bend and bunch up.
The curved wedges are for the sides. I only needed one each side but depending on the outline at the back you could have a gain from a second set further back. I tried to account for different stern board shapes with the little joiners and angled pieces but you can also chop them at an angle to flow them around the tail.
