Hi Joe,
I know the difference between a 38 cm and a 42 cm very clearly..... and, MC did not ask about anything
smaller than a 42 cm.
My guess would be that if she figures out "sailing a shortboard"/ gains some control on the Futura 133 with a 42 cm fin, her husband will find a way to get her onto smaller board (Futura 122/111/101) with a 32-38 cm fin.
Under finning her board with a 38 cm or smaller might give her more control, but also that small a fin on a board the tail width of the Futura 133 could induce a whole different set of control issues.
