He wants to make something similar to the 2/20 - but 11ft long and run it as a twingle. - he rode mine and was blown away by the trim and really like response out of the square tail.

Awesome, what size fins?
Send me your dinged, damaged, and yellowed.
Honestly? Back in the day it had not occurred to them that a router and a jig would whip that puppy right out. Lol.
Contact Foam EZ for a shipping quote , import duty may be the problem .
The recent Thomas fire came quite close to Dennis' place but he made it out okay. Still shaping and is one of the best and most prolific shapers in town. Dennis knows his stuff, has been around a long time, (back to the Front St. days) and can shape anything. Walden is.....Walden.
I did a board recently that reminded me of those early MP boards. I'll see if I can get you a pic. Lowel
I had a MP that had an off-set box with a wonder bolt to hold the fin in. It was pre- penetrator, and the box was just routed into the foam. I seem to remember somewhere in an old post that someone suggested placing strips of wood on each side of a box that wasn't centered in the stringer. I don't know if it would help. It wouldn't hurt to line all sides of the routed out foam with a layer of glass as a reinforcement.
"Back in the day they used to off set boxes because they didn’t want to cut into the stringer (or so I’ve been told)"
Here are a couple that were done that way from that area (Santa Barbara) but not M-P. These are a little older - Yater and Owl labels. Not sure why they did it that way but preserving the stringer integrity is as good a guess as any(?)
Here are photos of a Phil Edwards board with a glass-on offset fin. I believe this one adds credence to the idea that by simply offsetting the fin, you create an asymmetrical board with one side 'narrower' than the other.
John, you are correct in your belief.
