Might have to email them and ask about Deep Tuttle Fin boxes as they are listed in the products section, but not in the online catalogue.
Also, if there are any custom board builders in Estonia, get in touch with them as they usually have
a few fin boxes that they can sell.

What happened to your original Deep Tuttle Fin box.
I had an Apollo a few years back that a demo customer run the fin into a submerged tree stump and
really tweaked the DT Fin box. Bent both the screws so they had to be sawed off above the deck.
The rear of the fin box was cracked a bit.
Donny Bowers (Fox Hatterars repair and shaping expert) managed to fill in the back of the original
Deep Tuttle box (he put the fin in with a waxed paper barrier and it completely filled the damage at the
back of the fin box.)
That board is still sailing today.
Hope this helps,
Roger
