Hello....
My daughter has been using a Obrien Allgaier as a paddle board.  Are there any "fins" or anything that we can attach to the bottom to give her a little more stability??

Thank you

Answer
Hey John,

You really do need a fin even when using the board as a SUP. Looking at your pics I see that you will need a fin box and a fin. Measure the slot for length and then Google 'fin box'. You can get a basic fin box, commonly known as A Box, US Box, and sometimes Chinook box.

Check this link for some good images and descriptions of fin boxes;

Hope this helps.
Keep on sailing,
