After reading this I would appreciate more advice on temporary repairs while away; having 10 days in Sri Lanka this June and considering how to handle drying out for repairs. Hopefully I will get no dings, but will take board bog and an epoxy kit in case; Question is how long to dry the board before a temporary repair. Could I say dry it till the water stops dripping then do a temp repair and do a proper job at home - i.e. dry it for longer later on? What are the short & long term effects of repairing and using a board if there is still some moisture inside? Would it limit or reduce damage to remove the repair and re-dry the board for longer when I get home?
It is a short trip, I want to minimise time out of the water - but also mindful of water damage. I will have only one board due to costs etc - AddVance Rapidfire. Advice and suggestions all appreciated.
