OK, CoachG & Eva have it right about the water vapor rising as it heats, but if the damaged are is placed lower than the vent, and any pressure at all develops inside the board, or better still keep the vent closed, and the internal pressure will push the water out at the intrusion site.
Once no more liquid water drips out, THEN keep the intrusion site up above the vent.
Actually, since the intrusion site is on the rail, just putting the board on a slight angle with the intrusion site lower, and the vent plug sealed should help push any liquid out.
Then, when only worried about water vapor, leave the vent plug out with a paper towel wick pushed down in the vent hole and the board basically flat rail to rail.
