Help with Mirage 24 water problems
Hey, you had a 24? We just bought a '74 and are hugely frustrated with water dripping down the inside of the hull in the cockpit lockers and inside the cabin in about 8 spots and soaking our interior cushions and goods. It is not consistant really either...when water sits on the hull next to toerails, no problem, but after a big rain yes, after sleeping in the boat with no rain, sometimes, after sailing a very wet ride, yes. We have resealed our toerail edges, the "joint" where the deck meets hull and most everything on the deck. It has helped some. I have even gotten in the cockpit lockers and don't see anything obvious, jsut condensation. We are thinking horrible condensation from the 30-degree temp difference btwn day and night?? Seems like too much water for just that. Could each individual screw on the toerails and stantions be the culprit? Any ideas? Did you also have the problem? Help!
