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.
Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
