Rough guide for fin length, shape??

So, i have a fairly small centre fin, and that's it. I am thinking of cutting the centre fin off, and adding a large fin. Is there a roug...

Thanks ric. Does the tail rail need to be bevelled at all on the top side??. I know the bottom side needs to be sharpish, but what about the top, can i just bevel it down??. At the moment it is rectangular.

Q cell, how much to use??

What ratio of q cell to resin do i need to get a thickish pasty resin??. I have a board that needs fixing, and its a large ding on the rail.

Thanks ric, the measurements to the fins from the back, does that mean 3 and 3/4, from the tail, to the end ( closest to the tail ) of the finbox??. Also, what is the best way to put a concave in the bottom of the board, and how wide and deep do they roughly have to be??.
