Fresh water GOOD, Salt water BAD...Ain't necessarily so!
In my opinion, water coming down the inside of a mast shouldn't be a problem. It's fresh water, so as long as there are clean, adequate sized limber holes, the step isn't sitting in a puddle of bilge water and there is a little ventilation, not much is going to happen to it.
I understand the distinction between the interior and exterior of the the mast. However, given the topic of this thread, I think we should avoid the impression that fresh water leaking at the partners (not "inside" the mast) is OK . Here is a a thread I created which is slightly off topic, though certainly related. It's the main reason the leak at the partners bothers me.
