The chainplates are not surrounded by teak at their entry points. They go through the lowest run on the deck right inside the gunwhales. I have sealed and re-sealed them. The problem must inded be from elsewhere, probably cap rail and scuppers. I will tackle the scuppers soon.
I know that the cup solution will not solve the problem. I have tried to solve the problem but cannot, well, not as yet, anyway. The cup solution will reduce radically the amount of water running down the teak lining, and that, in the circumstances, is a step forward.
It is not invasive, and I can take them off again if I later solve the leak problem.
What are "partners"???
