First true PacNW rainstorm this weekend since we bought our 99 TC-24 earlier this summer. I thought the seal on the mast light might be questionable. The bracket (aft end of cabin top, center line) is slightly bent. And sure enough, I'm getting some droplets inside the cabin at the overhead cable penetration. Anyone know if the center raised (thicker) section of the cabin top is cored…or just fiberglass? Hoping I just need to replace the nav light fixture and reseal it...and not have to worry about moisture spread in balsa core.

My '08 22 is not cored (at least so far wherever I've drilled holes).

You cannot relate what a 99 Tom Cat has to any of the other years or C Dory models. The information should come from someone like James on Molly Brown, who has done some extensive work on his boat.

I have had the experience where one year on a certain C Dory model was different than the next year.

For what its worth, turns out the raised portion is plywood cored.
