Curing a leaky hull to deck joint on a Morgan 461

I am off to look at a Morgan 461 from the 70s and am aware that leaks in this area are common on these boats.

I think there is an inward turning lip on the hull, the deck is then screwed or bolted to that lip with some kind of sealant. A wooden toe rail then covers this area.

If it is leaking what fixes would you suggest. I am thinking that gooping a little silicone on is not going to cut it here.
