broken u.s. fin - need advice
Hi all (ROger??)
I broke my 30 cm Drake Crossover 300 fin, hitting a sand bank sailing my Kombat 105L here in Italy.
The fin, a U.S. box in G-10 material, is like new but I snapped the part of the fin which lodges the screw.
Question is, is there any chance I can fix it by glueing with 2-component epoxy? alternatively, can I change the fin upper part that connects it to the box and keep the fin body which is immaculated?
Should I necessarily buy a new one, there's no SB shop around here ... so, no Drake fin available. Which similar fin do you suggest for use with 5.9 Severne S-1 and 6.4 North Duke?
smaller fin I have is a 26cm Drake Natural wave, beautiful but not big enough and too flex for my largest sail...
many many thanks
