Check the connection to the back stay. The coax will often go bad here as power arcs if the connection is wet. Sometimes just cutting off a few inches of coax will fix the problem. When re-attaching, bring the coax to the clamp from above to keep water from getting into the end of the cable. Seal with self anealing tape. I'm in Puerto Del Rey waiting for the tropical storm to pass. Looks like it will about a week before we can leave for St. Maarten.
