New owner of a Tartan 3500. It has a keel
where the step actually sits on the fiberglass cabin sole
. I discovered that water
is seeping out from under the mast
step where it meets the sole and sloshing around under the teak flooring
that sits on the fiberglass
sole. I am curious if anyone is familiar with the design of the mast step interior
? I figure it must have drain holes but maybe there clogged because its only been leaking the last few months.
There's a small channel that runs under the step and then drains to the bilge
. I can barely get a few fingers in there and can feel the hose enclosed mast wires exiting the mast, but can't feel any drain holes. I'd like to seal up the mast step base, but want to know the water
has a path to bilge
. Any enlightenment would be much appreciated!
