Goirish,
That's basically what I'm doing except mine are completly under the stab. I'm attaching mine where the rear stab brace attaches. I figure theres less chance of them getting knocked off there.
What's the approximate area of your fins?
Peter

Sorry the pic did'nt copy; I'll have to take a new picture with my own camera. Something about Mac's and PC's not talking to each other.
One comment about the weight; I haven't weighed mine yet but it must be well over 20#. I had to add about a pound of lead to the nose to get it to balance. The stab is very heavy and to construct it using stick and sheeting construction could probably halve the weight thus eliminating some of the nose weight. I bet a pound total weight could be saved by this one mod.

Here's a picture of my SeaMaster showing the sub fins I added. They have really made the plane quite flyable. The total area of thetwo sub fins is 30sq." This has to be my favorite shot of the plane; I just love the way the spray is being sucked up behind the step.
