Rain water coming in through the inside of the mast?

This is not really a big deal since my vessel is all glass with a foam core. But, I''m trying to keep a dry boat. My mast is a Z-Spar stepped on the keel with internal lines and whenever it rains I get water in the bilges. Over the years it has rotted out the wooden floor joists and I''ve replaced them with syntheic materials so this will not happen again. This is a fin keeled vessel with about 3" of bilge space.


Does anyone have this same problem and what did you do about it. Or, am I just going to have to live with that little bit of water always collecting under my deck.
