It's not uncommon for the hull to deck joint to leak. The fix is to remove the rub-rail, deck to hull fasteners, pry the deck and hull apart, clean or grind smooth, lay a bead of something like 3M 5200 and re-assemble. It's not a fun or easy job so make sure the water is coming from the deck to hull joint before starting.
