Matt,

The knurled tensioning nut on my back turbo flipper keeps loosening. Each time I go out it seems to loosen about 1/4 inch. If I forget to screw it tight again the fin comes off the shaft. Is there something I can do to keep it tight. I was told that Locktite is not good in salt water.

I think Locktite should work fine -- give it a day to cure. You want ot use Locktite blue (in the red tube) in case you want to undo it later.8)
