Lions and Tigers and Bears...Oh MY!

Happens to my boat all the time. It's fresh water and it's going in your bilge as designed. Now.... if it's not going in the bilge (i.e., puddling at a bulkhead), thats another issue. That happened to me once when the mast drain became blocked.
So, two good things. Your boat is functioning as designed, and you've got a Keel stepped mast! Be happy....why worry!
Besides, there are so many other real issues to worry about on a boat!
