Ideally you could cut a hole at the bottom of the back wall and run the tuning straight through. The problem is how tight everything is. I don't have any tools that would have made that possible

i found that if you tie them too tight it can lead to the rot. I only use superglue now. You should cut the rotten parts out. I like to cap the end of the cut with superglue also

If you unlatch the front two the water will fill up all the way. Be quick though to lock them back up so water doesn't rush out
