Andrew’s Al Merrick FCS fins impacted upon

one of Kimmeridge’s Jurassic reefs.

The damage shot..

note trailing edge flattened & rear tab has

stress lines visable – due to tab being bent out of alignment

resulting in a broken FCS plug.

During surgery…


Both side fins re profiled together to ensure

symmetry & tab trued to maintain alignment.
