The MC is wood so fresh water leaks are a concern. This is how the man who built the boat dealt with water in the mast. He drilled a hole 8” above the bottom of the mast and inserted a PVC fitting. Then plugged below that with foam. Water is stopped by the foam, goes out the drain and is collected in a jug. This does not solve any mast boot leaks but I have emptied that jug many times so it is keeping some of the water out of the bilge. Dan S/V Marian Claire
