Are you storing a whole bunch of gear in the Vberth? I'm thinking that your trim is bow-down, defeating the draining capability of the trough.
If so maybe try moving some stuff around to get a more stern-lower trim.
Alternatively, a piece of weather-stripping attached to the underside of your retaining strips may discourage water from running under it... forcing to to run off the end of the curved hatch
