Thanks for all the responses. I just found out that Mistral may not
(still being looked at) cover the damage under a warranty claim. They
may offer a (pro-rate) credit towards the repair of this board, or a new
board. I actually bought the board 17 months ago - Feb last year, but
really didn't start using it until April-May. So, I guess I am
stretching the 12 month warranty just a tad...

I'll keep you all posted on this. Dan mentions that Hilfy offers a
lifetime warranty and that would certainly influence my decision on a
future board purchase.
