Fin boxes are in...

Installed the fin boxes today. With the wooden boards, when I need a thicker version of the resin, I take sawdust and mix it in with the resin until it is thick. Then I use that to "glue" things in.

I am also looking for a solution to the vent screw - I have a gor-tex leash plug, but I think that is going to be inadequate. The more I think about it, the more I want to do something like this:
