I posted a picture on my diary and im looking for advise. The hole is about 10 feet out on the main vine and is still solid and not getting soft. I pollinated on Friday at 14 feet out and was hoping this would be the keeper. If I keep it dry and dusted with sulfur will I be ok or should I turn the secondary before it and make that my new main vine. Any advise is appreciated.

Sulphur + Fan is a good move. As far as keeping a kin on the main vine past the hole VS retraining a secondary . . . that is a call that only you can make. The hole/defect on the main vine will have a negative impact on growth, and its still relatively early in the season, so . . .
