I just noticed a substantial exposed ding on the bottom of my Hellfire -- it is in the bottom of the board right over the Hellfire insignia. From prior damage, I know the danger of failing to get all the water out of a Firewire.
Here is my question... The place with the damage is not a place where it can easily drain out. Indeed, I haven't seen any water come out of the crack at all. However, I am leery of patching it up without a thorough drying.
Should I patch up the ding and drill a hole in the back to allow any water to drain out using gravity?
Or should I just use board bog for the next few days and then remove the temporary repair and let it air dry for a month or so when the waves are smaller?
Or should I drill out the existing hole to allow more water to evaporate?
Or something else?
Feedback appreciated. Oh, it is an FST.
