digbysailor is on a distinguished road

I had a 1981 h25 my mast step had a leak...unfortunately it did not come thru into the head instead it saturated the core and caused a slight compression of the deck roughly 1/8th of an inch on the aft end of the step.Normally a leak is absorbed by the core to a degree before it actually leaks into the cabin.My recomendation would be to demast the boat and remove the teak cover inside the cabin that encloses the mast step bolts and remove the nuts pull the stainless step and take a bent nail/dental pick and determine if the core has been comprimised if it hasnt then rebed the step with 5200 if it has determine the area that has been affected and remedy.long story short u need to demast.
