When I bought my 31 this past year, the surveyer said he saw water damage to the floor and suggested that I have the mast boot replaced.

I did so - a heavy rubber boot clamped well done by the boatyard.

On the boat this Saturday and a big storm rolled through. The mast dripped heavily - maybe 2 drips through per second.

The Isomat spars have the slots in them that I think are probably responsible.

How have others solved this problem? A little silicone in the mast slots?

Same problem with my boat, heavily siliconed the top of the mast boot and duct taped to missing slot covers. Solved the leaks.
