I assume that the C&C hull-deck joint is throughbolted with a mastic compound to keep the water out. Feel around where the hull and deck join and you should notice that it is slightly sticky. You might try tightening the bolts that go through the toe rail, deck and hull flange. Much easier with two people than one. Person outside holds the bolt in position with a scewdriver and the person inside tightens the nut. Don't overtighten - you don't want to squeeze out all of the bedding compound. You may find that some of the nuts are backed off just a bit over time and this is allowing the leak.
Finishing our major refit. Our trip to Newfoundland is off because it is too late. Hoping to go to the North Channel instead.
