Following a successful instrument approach the pilot circled to land on runway 27 at N10. WX was 1700 ft; light rain; winds 340 degrees at 3 KTS visibility 1 3/4 mi. An earlier WX system left runway wet. Aircraft touched down and hydroplaned. Braking action was poor. Aircraft also slid on cut grass on runway; which was wet. Aircraft ran off end of runway and damaged landing gear and propeller strike. Go around was not attempted as there were trees on the west end of the departure end of runway 27. Runway slopes downhill on the last 50% of runway 27. Much safer approachs to the airport would involve removing trees at east and west end of runway; principally the approach end to runway 27.

Title: SMA PILOT REPORTS RWY EXCURSION AT N10 DURING LANDING IN WET CONDITIONS ON RWY 27; AFTER CIRCLING FROM INSTRUMENT APPROACH.
Narrative: FOLLOWING A SUCCESSFUL INST APCH THE PLT CIRCLED TO LAND ON RWY 27 AT N10. WX WAS 1700 FT; LIGHT RAIN; WINDS 340 DEGS AT 3 KTS VISIBILITY 1 3/4 MI. AN EARLIER WX SYS LEFT RWY WET. ACFT TOUCHED DOWN AND HYDROPLANED. BRAKING ACTION WAS POOR. ACFT ALSO SLID ON CUT GRASS ON RWY; WHICH WAS WET. ACFT RAN OFF END OF RWY AND DAMAGED LNDG GEAR AND PROP STRIKE. GAR WAS NOT ATTEMPTED AS THERE WERE TREES ON THE W END OF THE DEP END OF RWY 27. RWY SLOPES DOWNHILL ON THE LAST 50% OF RWY 27. MUCH SAFER APCHS TO THE ARPT WOULD INVOLVE REMOVING TREES AT E AND W END OF RWY; PRINCIPALLY THE APCH END TO RWY 27.
