Last season it was all fine.
There was no incident involving kiel or hull.
I checked all the pipers connecting with the hull all is perfectly dry.

Did know anything about this, its killing me!

Hi there,

I have a similar issue on my Dufour 38 Classic from 2001. Water starts accumulating within the frame in front of mast post after heavy rain (emerging from those holes marked on your pic). I have vaccumed out all of the water from last shower we had and pretty much bone dry it to be able to establish where its coming from initially. Definately its from somewhere within bow section but still I'm not 100% sure from where. I'm planning placing a hose on one side of the bow and see if we have any leak emerging along the railing and plan than to repeat that on the other side till its narrow down. Have you find your leak yet? Many thanks C-Wolf
