Anyway to tweak the stab angle on these? I already have the mast track pretty far forward and boom low and still getting a ton of front foot pressure. This is on a dedicated foil board which doesn't have many strap options - front straps all the way forward at the moment. The foil is a temp while my regular one is in the shop.

a washer on the middle screw of the stab will fix it. Don't overtighten it !

Rubber washers also can do the trick. Since there are three screws in the stab, just add one in the front. I've also seen 1 in the middle and 2 in the front. The rubber washers allow for some adjustability.

one or two in the front has to be rubber because you don't want the front part of the stab sticking out and creating cavitation and whistling sounds

That looks easy enough to design and print on the 3D printer! May have to design a few!

Do you know Plastimake?

Great stuff to form some special kind of custom washer. Very strong and reusable.
