See Fin Catalogue
Fin box, fibreglass 7'' x 2 1/2'' and 1 1/2'' deep.

Images courtesy of Mick Mock, Sydney Surf Auction 2010, Catalogue #103.

Bob McTavish: Pods for Primates Part 1,Tracks February 1972:
"Roger 'Duck' Keiran in Queensland had the first shaping machine, milling out balsa shapes.
And spray gun glosses.
Duck had many good ideas.
Removal fins even.
Small fins.
His timing was wrong that's all.
Ducky's glasser Dick Laycock came to McDonagh's when Ducky's 'Okinui Club' factory folded in
Queensland, and the foam era began."
