I don't think they are designed to be necessarily "tight". Basically they hold the boards in place but you can easily move them around even while clamped and you will see the boards bounce a bit when clamped in and running on rough water.

Are yours too loose to even hold the boards??

well thought i might bring this back up. we were out this past holiday windy weekend and the boards bounced up and down and "fingers" floated.

Have you emailed MC by Design/Gere Marie? Maybe they have a rebuild kit. Or maybe you can disassemble and install a stiffer spring.
