Re: rain water entering bilge thru mast.

Common problem.

Here's one solution: copied from a Fellow Sabre owner

Installing Garboard Drain

On my version ( centerboard) I have removable nut in the bilge that allows me to push down a stuck centerboard. In the winter, I just remove the nut and any water that gets in the bilge from the mast, drains down through the centerboard trunk.
