Sorry Huie but the pin position is fine for properly installed boxes, the point is that no pin position can be correct for boxes which are ground down by 5mm AND boxes which have not been ground down significantly, on fins which are thicker than the box slot... it's elementary old sport.

ok Roy i understand you defending your position''

but i do not understand why? you want to turn good logical information into an i know best.

if i look at the poor quality pic i see your front tab siting high yet in the yank made fin it sits flush
the thickness of the fin has no bearing on it as most box fins are machined to fit regardless of foil thickness
and if you are suggesting that a sander has sanded the box down 5 mll or more then why would we be even bothered about such stupidity.
no matter how we do something someone will all-ways be complaing
Roy you will learn you will never ever be able to accommodate the clowns that buy boards and can not even tighten some screws on a fin -- they will lose them and all ways blame you.
(not aimed at saltman)
pin center line 7ML
have a nice day old sport :-D-:
cheers huie

That's exactly what's happened, and I'm bothered about it because Saltman needs a fin to fit the box.

I made several points about fins fitting Bahne boxes, you've mixed them up a bit in your reply so I'm not surprised that it doesn't make sense. Your reply wasn't quite logical.

I've covered the relevant info above so don't want to repeat it.

All the best and thanks for weighing in.

off course and thats good'' but why did you not ask saltman to measure the depth and then the debate would have changed slightly

so now your saying he has a bahne box installed and they have sanded 5 mil of it
i find that hard to believe
if you are confused with my detailed info then you are in denial

Well that's what has happened. It's not uncommon a customer recently had a McCoy board with 3mm taken off the box.

Both Australian and USA made are technically Bahne boxes.

You are the one who is confused.

I can explain where you are mistaken again if you like.

Hi Huie,

Of course the two bases are not the same I already explained why in detail.

What I've been doing is explaining where you are mistaken, all the necessary research has been done prior to this thread.

You'll see the fins above fitting nice and snugly and flush with the box. That fact doesn't seem to fit your agenda, but there it is.

the way your fin sits in Steves box is no doubt right.

The fin was used in another board today and was flush - so yes because my board was foiled out so much in the tail we lost 2 - 5mm of the top of the box to make it fit

I kinda like saying shaved box :oops:

I will send it back to you this week Roy

Roy - do you think that imperfect fit at the base (due to fin box having been ground off) would cause a hum?

I'm going to get the Gullwhale fin back from Steve in the next few days and I am going to find a way to fix the problem with that bit of a gap between box and fin.

What would you like me to try out first: Wax, hot-melt-glue or blue-tak?

Personally, I think that hot-melt-glue will be best, but you never know until you try something.

The only two fin boxes we've come across which have been massacred by the installer are both on this thread... how convenient.

#*!

I don't see how bogging the fin will help much as presumably you have 5mm of tab sticking out of the box as well.

The best thing to do is to take the board back to the maker and get him to replace the box since it's his f&ck up.

:B

This box installation problem hasn't happened with USA boxes so far probably because the USA boxes have sacrificial tabs which locate the box at the correct depth.

The green Outer Island board board is one of mine, the fit of the BLEF was fine, the BLEF also fitted another Outer Island, the Futures Bonzer side bites fitted well in the Futures side boxes.
About the Outer Island boards, Mitchel Rae would not install Futures side bite boxes as he said they would have to be ground to fit the bottom contours of the channel and concaves for the board as maintaining straight doesn't fit a curved surface.
All my boards have thickness in the tail so there was no need to grind or reshape the centre fin box to fit bottom contour, Box Au naturale :lol:
Jaffa, I'm opinionated, and I'm sometimes right. So?

Hi Saltman,

Sorry about the late reply, have been awol.

Will PM address, will definitely make a new fin to fit your shallower box. If you have another board which you'd like to try the fin in, then hang on to it for now.
