Fix Vertical Fin

After handling the rest of the pieces that have been covered with fabric, I decided that the fabric on the vertical fin wasn't tight enough. The problem was that the bottom rib was too flexible, so I decided to add a vertical support member between the upper and lower fin ribs. Of course, this meant cutting out the fabric from the middle of the fin and re-applying it afterwards. Fortunately, I've had lots of practice with this!
