Well, it doesn't follow by logic, but to some degree, yes. But it's not a totally straightforward relationship. I reckon you have to do some serious calculations to really know the details, but intuitively, increasing both fin base length and box length will help a bit but not that much since even with a stiff g10 base, the torque will be concentrated at the center. But conversely, using a long box with a short fin base will really hurt the strength since the edges of the box help a lot in keeping it distortion free and the further away from where the torque is applied they get, the less useful they will be.
