Moonfish22 is on a distinguished road
People are lazy, I have an ericson 32, there is a little bit of weatherstripping that goes around the ericson windows (at least back in the 70's) and the inner ring just clamps the outer window along with weatherstripping to the cabinsides, this weatherstripping dries out and lets water in between the frame and the cabin, also, the rubber that seals the glass into the aluminum frame can dry out, as was the case in mine.

It's an easy fix but the guy i bought it from said it had been leaking for 10 years or more. Ridiculous, i fixed it the first weekend i owned the boat.

Hope that helps a bit, Ericsons' are good boats, they went out of business because they built their boats too well, they just couldn't afford to keep building them like that.
