Default Old School Snowboard Shapes?

Well first off I love my old stick, a circa 1993 k2 ac 166. Kills the pow and has a surfy feel. It has a split edge and unfortunately won't survive many more days on east coast ice/hard pack.

I'd love to find something similar but it seems that no one seems to shape boards like it anymore. Boards seem to be much wider in general and have soft noses and stiff tails. I think my beloved is fairly stiff, with a stiffer nose then tail.

So tonight I broke out the tape measure to see exactly what the differences are. This is what I came up with:

length: 166cm
nose width: 29.2cm
mid width: 24.1cm
tail width: 28.5cm
nose length: 25"
tail length: 20"
2.5" set back, correct?

So I'm wondering if there are any modern boards out there that may similar shape, narrow with a big set back?

~2004 Burton Fish somewhat fits that description, and would probably be fairly easy to find. Fat long nose, stiff short tail, huge setback, gives it that surfy feel in powder that you are looking for. I'm looking for another one right now. It's pointed tip has an oldschool look to it, and you definitely get a lot of looks unless you're hiking.
