Has anyone had this issue? I have a leak that I can't locate, I have rebedded the stanchions with butyl tape, the leak is on the starboard side in front of the wooden bulkhead, it is really odd because the carpet / headliner is only wet on the bottom (see photo) the picture is taken from the v berth, the boat is a 21' older precision, amy help with this would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you
Davin

The first that comes to mind is the deck seam joint. Read Tom Scott's book about this. In order to fix it you pull the rub rail away, clean and reseal with 5200.
