Re: water,water everywhere
I have a First 45 and have had to order a new table due to water damage. I have twice had to take out 15+ gallons over the winter. (I had the boat shrink wrapped). I believe the water on my boat is coming in through the air inlets directly over the table. I can't get at them on deck without ripping out a plastic cover (won't come off despite taking out screws and am afraid of breaking it), but I believe the air inlets are sitting in a "tray" that fills from around the mast and then over-flows into the inlets.
