    Board bags!!!!

    I've got a 6'1'' channel islands gravy. Lots of volume, wide board, and I want to keep the fins on when I travel. So, I'm looking for a bag, and I can't find one that is wide enough and that you can keep the fins on. Help me!!!!!!!!!!

    or make a styrofoam guard to go over your fins.

    I have heard reccomendations for keeping them in because after a while of putting them on and off, the fin key starts to strip.

    Keys are pretty much free. The solution here is when you pack your bag, take a toothpick and poke your grub screws to remove any debris. Set the key into the grub screw all the way, use a little pressure, and back the grub screw out carefully. When you arrive at your destination, your grub screw has already been cleaned, so the key will fit in nice and tight.

    These systems are designed to be removable. That's what you pay for, and that's what you get. Eliminate user error and you'll be fine.

    I've use a Creatures of Leisure travel bag for my wide boards, Can fit 2 boards w/ no fins, or one board w fins. My fish is 21" wide. Great travels bags...

    Extra fin keys and set screws are like $2. Its not worth risking serious damage by flying with fins in just to avoid wear and tear on key/screws.
