Pat(saildork) yes this does help. Tell me exactly how you removed the old connector. Did you drill from inside the cabin till you hit it then pulled it down through (how would you know exactly were it is being inside)or did you hack it out the top somehow? I am thinking I should drill a very small hole down through the top(through the existing connector) in order to get a exact location then drill up through the bottom from the cabin ceiling with the correct size bit.(width of the connector body) Insert the new connector and fill with waterver someone suggests.(3m 5200?) Or should I just abort the existing and move to the other side of the mast with a new hole like Capn blue suggested. I would rather stay on the existing side because that is were the wire exits the mast. I could change that. Thanks Andy
