Our 1980 C37 also had some leaks forward. We took the overhead panels down and put a hose on all the joints while someone watched inside for leaks. Had to fix the port pulpit base where wire for the bow light penetrates the deck. Also some leaks at the windlass and deck fills. The oddest one was the port hawse hole fitting. There is a gap between the two halves which is sealed with a rubber hose and silicone seal. The hose was cut too small and water shot onto the overhead panel and ran aft soaking things. Also spent time filling/sealing the top gap between the chain locker bulkhead and deck to keep any windlass leaks from running aft on the overhead panels. Didn’t notice leaks from the hull-to-deck joint.

BTW, we thought our C37 was an ‘81 until the factory clarified the build date.
