Going to fix my mast to make it water-tight. I have a few questions.
First, I'm waiting for the mast to dry completely, then I'm taking it down and submerging it in my swimming pool to find the leaks. Will I need to pump air into it to find the leak bubbles?
Second, if the rivets are leaky, do I drill out the old rivets? Do you know what size drill bit I should use?
Third, if the seal at the top and bottom needs to be replaced ( I want this to be really water-tight) how would I get the sealant out of the top / bottom of the mast? Once it's out do I just re-seal it? What do I use?
I know this is a lot of questions and thanks to all that respond. This will be a weekend project next weekend.
