The way it is drawn the top part of the fin is end grain balsa and is attached to the fin. I add a few layers of extra carbon cloth in the layup to make a hard shell around the balsa and just a bit below the joint into the foam. I am thinking to hollow it out a bit for access to the pushrod. If it all works out right I can use an L bend at the top of the pushrod and a ball link at the bottom. I can put the pushrod at its upper extent for assembly.
