Have a 7'2 Christenson C-bucket (single fin). Was thinking of adding some fin boxes (futures) to make it a quad. Any suggestions on box/fin placement? Will I screw up the board adding the fin boxes?

Sell it. The entire design (rocker, bottom contours, rail profiles) is oriented toward surfing it as a single. Meaning, you're surfing it more passively and letting the board do most of the work. You want to put those boards into trim, stay with the curl of the wave and get some glide going, not actively pump it and outrun the wave so you can get a lot of turns in.

If you're going for the glide it really is hard to beat a single. There's literally less drag.
