Water in my Laser Hull

I totally dried out my Laser during the hot summer months. Absolutely NO water inside the hull. Now I've got water again inside my hull! From the mast step? How do I get the water out? How do I check the integrity of the mast step and repair it? THANKS.

To test the mast step fill it with water. See if the water level goes down. Water can also get in through the small hole right below the front of the hiking strap, If the bow is angled down and rain water collects in the cockpit.


Upside down?

Run a soap bubble test.
The bailer is another potential (and fairly common) source of leakage.
