Re: Leaks when it rains.

Thank you all for your replys and suggestions. I have stopped the leak I thought might be at the mast. It was port side chain plate. Needed recaulking. A very knowlegable sailor moored a couple boats from me saw me working on it. I actually paid him a very reasonable fee to help out. He further showed me how to stop porthole leaks. I feel really good about this boat. I am planning on pulling her out of the water, replacing the shaft zinc, cleaning the hull. Inspect for blisters. I found a receipt in the paperwork. Looks like 2003 was her last out haul and zinc replacement. Yikes!! Any input here will be appreciated. Should I be prepared to paint hull?
