    I suddenly have a leak in the aft cabin of my 1998 Hunter 310. The water is pooling in the low spot at the aft access panel to the underside of the binnacle. The access panel to the adjacent light fixture (which is higher) is dry.

    I figure it is from the arch, or a stanchion, but figured I would see if anyone else had the same or similar issue before I start chasing down causes.

    Thanks,

    Dave

    check inside the pedestal where the electrical cables go through the cockpit sole. On my 310 the electric cables go straight through the sole directly above the aft cabin access port with only caulking to prevent water intrusion. Not sure if this was the original route or PO install but it amazes me that it doesn’t leak.

    Thanks, Tim. That's the first place I looked. But the pedestal is bone dry inside. As best I can tell it is coming from the starboard side.
