I called shop and was told no one makes a center fin for a turtle box but seems like I remember there being an adapter or maybe Iím confused.

They probably don't know what a turtle box is--spell check is generally equally harmful as helpful.

Any shop that also supports windsurfing will have plenty of Tuttle fins. Anything will work. You don't need a deep Tuttle fin for it to work with a deep Tuttle box.

Just get a typical dolphin-shaped Tuttle windsurfing fin. Don't expect it to work well. the placement for the mast of a foilboard is generally way forward of where a center fin on a surfboard would be.
