So, my quad/fish is pretty much the most active board in my quiver around these parts, aside from the LB of course. I will just cut the sh** and say it. I want to convert it to a 5 fin option, most commonly for thruster use. I love the board, I have it dialed in, I am just not a huge fan of the quad....

So, would I butcher this board, that is otherwise mint condition by trying to cut into it and install a 5th FCS plug? Or should I just bite the bullet, call the local shaper and have him do it. I just don't want to compromise the integrity of the board, since she is a cherry at this point.

Again, aside from some major repairs of the years and spending too much time in my shaper's bay in CA, I really have never shaped or done serious glassying....

Is this an ill advised idea?
