Surfed a hollow wood surfboard I built and glassed yesterday and after 3rd wave I noticed vent plug was gone. Vent plug was installed about 1/3 back from nose of this 9’ longboard.
On install I believe I may have stripped threads on plug.
Another screw up was installing vent housing too shallow and allowing vent plug to rise above deck of board once screwed in.
I have since ordered new plugs (comes with housing as well)
My questions are:
1. If new plug screws in smoothly do you think it will stay screwed in or will the slightest bump to the non flush plug pop the plug out?
2. How tough is it to drill out old housing, increase depth of hole and install new housing?
Thanks for your help.
