    As suggested above. Cut off wheel on the dremel. Lightly cut the screw slot wider and deeper. The head will then be thinned out near the shaft of the screw. Put a stubby screwdriver in the slot and twist. The remainder of the screw head will crack off. Remove fin and plate with shaft corroded in and replace both.

    Here you are... Actually got it out by a friend applying pressure to a flat head drill bit and me turning the drill bit using pliers. That was enough torque to break the rusted screw.

    Board is a Davenport 40-65. Picked it up on CL and needed a little TLC and is now in great shape. Surfed it for the first time today and loved it.

    This guy is all repaired now and a couple others. A better pic of the tail also.
