Cauking question

We have a aura Columbia 8.7 1984. Apparently they are prone to leaks along the seam where the deck and hull meet. The problem is well know I guess and caused due to insufficient cauking at the joint.

I have a leak, very isolated to the area of one screw from the toe rail. I don't think it is the screw - but to eliminate that the suspect fastener was coated in 4200. The area is leaking along the chalking between the hull and deck.

How do I fix that???
