IMHO drilling holes and applying products such as Git-rot, etc just prolongs the time before you need to tear it apart and do it right. Once the wet core has become either a safety issue (busting thru a deck is not pretty), or a structural problem (near jib tracks, etc.) it's time to do it. Prior to that if you can STOP the water intrusion early, a slightly wet deck can be lived with for a number of years.
