1.  Don't get carried away tightening toe rail fasteners.  You could
squeeze out too much butyl rubber and cause the leakage to increase.  I
apply several applications of Captain Tolleys Creeping Crack Cure to the
toe rail/deck interface every spring.  Seems to keep leaks there at bay.

2. Touché's mast has Spartite sealed with gray silicon self fusing tape.
No leakage whatsoever.  Pics can be seen here:

Randy, Neil, Bill,

Thank you all for the advice. I've marked the hull with a washable marker
and will check for water next weekend. The mast is in, and it hadn't
crossed my mind that the water was coming through it. I'll add replacing
the mast boot and installing a garboard drain to my list of projects.

Thanks again,
