Re: Dry bilges

just another reason not to have a furling mast along with fluting, poor battonless shape even worse when reefed, expensive blah blah blah...

but that doesnt help you now. ive seen masts filled with foam to a level above the deck and drain holes drilled there. depends on how the wiring gets out of the mast to the rest of the boat though. or you could fab an aluminum plug/plate to do the same thing, tricky installing it though but its been done before. riggers have all kinds if tricks for working inside masts. of course pulling the rig just to fix this minor design flaw might be too much.

glad im deck stepped...
