Some electronic assemblies are very washable.  Some are not.  Nothing wrong with this if you remove the problem assemblies and have a very good drying plan.
I've washed boards this way and then put them in a large commercial pizza oven to speed up the drying process.  A little cheese and garlic and ..... BAM.  Yummy stuff.

It looks very loose to me.  He should have tightened those screws up!

Judging from the amount of water in the street and the fact that he's taken the back off, I'm guessing that he's already washed the inside of it.

Good point!

I had a mixer that was wet two days in a row each morning, I had suspected the leaking tent, and condensation, though I had covered the board.
On the third day,  a few channels started flaking out and the board started making noise on the main outputs.

Got a spare board in place, took the mixer out of the case and found the case had gallons of water sponged in the foam on the bottom, and water literally poured out of the mixer.

Turns out sprinklers in the tent had been coming on each night and spraying the console from underneath, the board cover had directed the flow in to the case.

It took three days for the corrosion to start, if the hose jockey in the OP does properly dry the board off before start up, all may be well, or better than it was  ;).

You know if you ever drop a camera in salt water you should soak it in a bucket of fresh water.  Really!  I didn't believe it either but I learned it from pros.  I'm talkin' expensive cameras like the old Nikon F4!  Apparently salt water will destroy delicate electronic connections but fresh water does no harm once dried out.  Not sure how this relates to washing a mixing console though. :o

He should put it in a big bucket of rice! That's what we do to wet cell phones...
