I seem to have a similar problem, or maybe the beginning of it. I have raised lines running down the plainng surface of my Is-111 but the rises are very small.

Since it looked more like a problem with fairing of the bottom rather than water penetration I decided to sand with 360. Very moderate careful sanding seem to even out my planing surface (the wood lines show where the thin paint has been sanded off).

I suspect that it is unwise to leave the wood showing (although it is resin impregnated), so my question is if I should paint just to be on the safe side (or maybe return the board under warrnty?)
