Antenna leak
 
1 Attachment(s)
So I've completed a strip and prime with Pro-cryl and expected everything to be sealed up with 2 coats of acrylic primer. After heavy rain I found a leak coming right down the antenna crank. 1 can of flex seal later I though the problem was solved. 6 hours of rain on the maiden voyage and we stayed dry, yey! Then a torrential downpour yesterday morning showed I still have water coming in the antenna crank. 74 argosy pic attached, Any suggestions?

I expect there is an O-ring in there that seals the shaft. Take it apart and find the seal.

Do you / did you use the crank between when it stayed dry and the latest rainstorm when it leaked?

Maybe it loosened up or vibrated a gap in the flex seal. Try more! :)

Thank you

Also there is a plastic weather seal that covers the mechanism. If that is missing it might leak more but I think mine has been gone for years and it does not leak.
