After two days of rain, I went to the boat today to find that the little reservoir inside at the base of the mast was full of water and that it had overflowed and soaked into the big midship floorboard. I've removed the floorboard and have it drying and have sopped up the water, but obviously I need to find the leak. I tried searching, but couldn't find anything. Has anyone had this issue and how did you solve it? My immediate thought was "new mast boot", but I want to be sure I'm not missing anything. The floorboard looks pretty bad after soaking for 2 days, looks like I have a new winter project.:( Funny thing is that the weekly hosing down of the boat has never caused this. Was it just a fluke?
