Before any repair work can take place, the damaged area will need the be flushed out with fresh water, otherwise the board will never dry out completely, Sea water is hydroscopic, therefore, if you haven’t cleaned the board in fresh water, you may think it is dry but then the residue salt crystals within the damaged area will absorb moisture from the atmosphere and the damaged area will once again becomes wet and the repair may not take.
