Good to see you on here. I met you at Sherman last summer. I'm surprised you are so modest about your learning curve. You were one of the early guys with a foil. When the season picks up again in California we are going to see ten times as many foilers out there.
I see you picked up an MHL Lift, and it's a higher aspect? I have the regular Lift and I am hopeful the higher aspect foil from MHL will be able to attach to the pre-existing fuselage.
But the reason I am posting on here, since we are talking about MHL's, is my board. I am not a carbon fiber guru, so I thought I would put the question up here:
Putting my board away, I had the board laying deck side down so that the threaded inserts are facing up. They all had water in them. I noticed air bubbles coming out of a couple of the holes.
I realize that the board may gain internal pressure, especially if its been in the sun a bit. Should I be concerned that there is a "leak" around these inserts? Moreso the fact that if air can get out, water can get in. I know the board also came with holes in the deck for mounting footstraps with regular tap screws. This leads me to think that maybe its not a big deal, or maybe these tap screw holes go into a sealed part of the board?
Just thinking that a surfboard, with traditional fiberglass or epoxy, if you had holes and water getting through the glass into your foam, eventually it helps compromise the board. Honestly I don't know if MHL's have a foam core or what. I have seen fancy hollow carbon fiber surfboards.
