Fin Box Repair

Post by Soren.. » Sat, 09 Mar 1996 04:00:00


        Reciently I tried to repaired my fin box on my epoxy board,
I dug out my old fin box and replaced it with a Chinook strong box,
then hardened it in with a Marine Resin mixture. The Resin went bad
on my board and also my friends who was also replacing his fin box.

        Is there any suggestions on how to get the old resin out
without damaging my board and also what type of poxy I should use.

thanks for your help.

"Went Bad" maybe you could give a bit more info on what happened?
I have this image of lumps of resin lurking in a alleyway smoking crack
waiting to mug unsuspecting fin boxes walking down the street;-)

When doing board repair, remember, like sticks to like. If the Marine Resin
you used was polyethylene based, it is no wonder it went bad. Use epoxy
resins on epoxy boards.

Take off!!
Let's see some fin!!

"Went bad" refers to the tendency of certain resins to cause finbox mutations
due to "latent covalent bonding hyperpolymerization" (LCBHP). Remember when we
had only one type of fin box? Now there are how many? This resin must be
disposed of properly before finbox types proliferate and cover all bodies of
open water.
