for example, the firewire twin fish and quad fish are exactly the same dims (probably different fin placement)
do you think that if I put keel fins I could ride it as a twin ?

you could ride it as a single fin, just use one fin.

the question is how well will it work?

try it and see.

most quads front fins would be placed somewhere between 10.5-11" up while a keel more like 6 or 7 inches up.


so realistically i would say no.

I did it with an old Pavel. Big carbon panel fins in the back. Worked well. Should try everything...
