I am wondering if the 4 aluminum extrusions that make up the square frame the tramp attaches to are sealed. I am assuming they are not. I have some holes in my front tube (above the dolphin striker) where rivets used to hold the original jib blocks and I am wonderinging if water gets in there if it will just drain right out?? I am lake sailing.

No they are not sealed and do not need to be.

No they are not and the connections to the corner castings are loose enough that I would think water could get out. I wouldn't worry about it unless you hear a ton of water sloshing around inside.
