wires going up the mast - where do they go in?
I took a pic and I'll be posting it, but in a nutshell there are 4 wires (3 DC and 1 antenna) going up my mast. The wires come out through a sleeve in the deck right forward of the mast step, then into a hole in the front of the mast.
Of course it's all open, so I expect rain and, on a heavy day, seawater goes right down that sleeve. Is it normal for wires to enter the mast this way? Why not just bring them into the mast from underneath the mast step?
