    If it's the fins, contact Future and maybe you can sort it out with customer service.

    make sure theres no extra glass or resin hanging over in the top edges of the fin box....if there is take a razor and gently scrape the inside edges of the boxes until the fins go it....i had to do this once.

    I've had the same problem... There's two different base depths. I didn't feel like going back to the shop, so i took a table saw a shaved 1/8" off the bottom. The shop should help you out though.

    I always get this problem with futures. But it is not that the fins wont fit they are just really hard to get them into the box. I discovered soap and the fins slide right in now with no problems and they also come out easy also.
