Leak in V-birth and main cabin - can't track it down
We have a pretty significant leak in two places, on the starboard side of the v-birth and main cabin. It's pooling up in the cubbies. Following Don Casey's book, we've reamed out the core and epoxied, re-bedded and sealed all the stanchions, cleats and blocks and took a shot at the portlight (not pretty but appears to be watertight). We did the same on the port side and were able to stop all the leaks but not the starboard leaks. Any suggestions as to what to go after next? Could it be the chainplate? I'm a little hesitant to pull the chainplate without some professional help but can't figure out where else it may be coming from.
