    i got an original 1967 Hobie Garry Propper Model from a friend of mine. It came with the original Bolt through fin plus a handful of replicas with two extra bolts. I don't need all of the fins, any jammers in need of one?

    the black fin with the most area bottom left is the original Hobie fin. the two fins to the right of that are fiberglass. the three fins above it are molded plastic.

    the Hobie itself is in pretty great shape for a 50 year old board. No major damage, a few dents and shatters, one or two small fixed dings and a bunch of minor pressure type scratches on the bottom of the nose. otherwise completely water tight and ready to rock.

    Okay so i decided to hold on to the original fin and the red fiberglass fin next to it. so @Pacis you can have the other red one (molded plastic), and @SharkB8 you can have the green one (fiberglass). now the bolt in the original fin is larger in diameter and only fits the original fin. I only have 2 bolts that fit the replicas. I will keep one and let one go. Did either of you want a bolt with your fin? i'm not really sure what to charge for these fins, so i'm open to offers form the both of you. Both fins are in New/ unused conition. I'd like sell them to you at a reasonable price + shipping $8 USPS.

    Juan does an awesome job with fins. I've gotten a couple from him & he was great to talk to. Fins looked good & rode even better.
