I have a 1998 Beneteau with Lewmar portals (at least, that's what brand I think they are).
This weekend when we went up to pull the boat out and put it on the hard (a sad day, for sure), we had three portals which clearly had leaked water. There had been a lot of rain - some of it driving rain - since we were last up at the boat. Fortunately, it didn't do any permanent damage to the wood work.
So, does anyone have any insight into this sort of issue? This is our first big boat, we've had it about six years, and have not run into these issues before. Any thoughts/advice as to how to proceed would be appreciated.
