I bought a new Wave in Sept. 06 and sailed it Labor day weekend (3 full days of sailing), when I took it out of the garage this spring and strated to assemble it I noticed that the rear hull crossbar had a fair amount of water in it.
I noticed that the end caps are rivited on and seem very well sealed, the only other appearant point of entry is the attachment of the main sheet block.
Question 1: How did the water get in there and how do I get it out?
Question 2: I tried to remove the main sheet block to drain the water through the fittings but the screws turned real loose but will not come out, and the worst part, they will not retighten. Are these in a fitting or is there a "backer" that could have fallen free, and how do I get those secured.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I called the dealer I got it from and they were of little help saying they have never seen this before and I don't really want to drive the 60 miles there to drop off the part. I am hoping Mr. Miller will have some info for me.
