    Wow man thats a pretty darn good deal. Nice to see you don't have the same pricing model/ego as Roy.

    I wouldn't pre-set the FCS plugs for two reasons.

    First - i just think the board should be completely shaped, especially the hard rail edge and foiling before the fins location is finalized.

    Second - fin location and toe in angle is matter of personal preference and depends on what twinnie fins you plan to install (i.e. keels, uprights, double foiled) Why not provide some suggestion on fin location, but leave the final decision to the rider.

    Hey Nick.
    I offer limited one on one classes if that interests you. I've had some very happy people go through the class and great feedback from everyone.

    Pre setting is fine to do before glassing or sealing on wooden boards in my opinion because once you set them into the blocks you still seal around them quite well it only requires you to be careful to not get resin in or on them, taping off the plug works too.. But usually your right it's not ideal but for someone who wants to shape a wooden blank and not fiddle around with routing hardware this option is good I think. Besides if you seal with oil this isn't as much a big deal.

    And I've only sold one blank like this, it was upon request, I can put the plugs whit any toe angle really but it's simpler to set em in free running and suggest that the rider uses free running twins.. Keeping it simple and cheap is all. That's what people want withe surfboards I find, very pice sensitive.

    As for positioning of the plugs in regard to the rails, I do the first rail bands with a router so it's accurate as to the finished rail shape in relation to the pre set fcs plugs.
