Hi. I have a subscorcher (great board) which suffered harsh damage on a reef - notably, thumb sized smash on rail, 3 inch crack/split on deck, and cracked centre Fuzion fin plug. Left it to dry out in warm room, wax down and tail below the level of the nose by about 1 foot. During the afternoon when the ambient temp was highest (~28C) water was forced out of hairline crack in plug via a tiny hole in laminate above plug. The next day more water appeared. And the day after. And day after... It's been two weeks now, and every time it gets warm and air expands inside it, more water appears.
Nightmare. I have no idea how much water is in there!
So I can try and work out approximately how much water is in it (and whether to get hold of another board whilst I try to dry it out) does anyone have a figure for the weight of an undamaged 6'0'' Lost Subscorcher FST (with or without fins, wax and pad - any numbers better than none!!). I guess there will be slight differences between boards, but hopefully factory economy should keep this minimal. Infact, any Firewire Rep's out there with the numbers?
Also, if anyone has any tips on water extraction...
Many thanks in advance from a vaguely dismayed fellow surfer.
