My guess is that the leak is from the mast. Obviously you will have wire leads, etc, making their way from the top of the mast through the deck. THat is about the only weak link i can think of on a DS (which is one of the best reasons to buy them, incidentally). Hmmmm. I am racking my brain trying to come up with a solution to not demast. If your wire leads go through the cabin top versus down the comp post see if that might be leaking (I doubt it).

If the leak is not too bad, I would live with it. Try calling Hunter. I have no idea what type of Cust Service they will give you. I would start there. Check with the Hunters forum too. But my guess is that through a line lead or the top of the mast of both, a hard driving rain is making it way down the mast and through a wire run.

Cam and SD are often good at creative solutions. PM them for help. Not sure if I was much help, but good luck.
