Funny thing was these trickles were evenly spaced. I figured they were coming in thru the bolts that held the top and hull together and those bolt heads are coverd by the rub rail. So I ran a bead of clear caulk along the top edge of the run rail around the entire boat. Amazingly the boat has been 100% dry since then...16+ years.

Good luck
Congrats, you're now ready for the Indian Ocean.
