  • Do any fin screws not suck?  I've had to drill mine out, stripped, rusted in, etc.

  • Mineral oil based grease and stainless set screws.  If Mcmaster Carr doesn't have it, it probably doesn't exist.

  • This oldie but goodie popped up on my Facebook feed this morning, courtesy of my friend and extraordinary surfboard shaper, Brian Wynn.


    As Brian said in the comments on the post, "It's always the shaper's fault."  ;) ::)

  • I don't know, I've never had a fin screw rust before or after that board.  They must have been a different metal.

    Some of them rust a little, but not like these did

  • Ok I'm done for now….I don't mean to stir the brown trout SeaCliff, but that needed to be said.


    No worries. Seems Mark has no shortage of people willing to stand up for his work, including people as talented as you, my friend.


    Great seeing you at the show last night - glad to see you're doing well! That was a sick shape you were showing off to Mr. TC! Can I entice you to stick around long enough to post some images of it and tell the story of the inspiration behind the shape?  ;D ;D ;D


    Sure thing but Andrew tells the story best. http://pilgrimsurfsupply.com/mystery-tom-currens-tiger-toe/ I'll make a dedicated post to the board in a few days. How can I upload images directly without having to provide an HTTP address?

    I'm tinkering with the forums and hope to have a "simple upload" done by Monday or Tuesday. In the meantime, when starting a new topi, click on the bottom where it says "attachments". An instruction and upload box will open up, and you should be able to add your images.
