Not sure if you found my post that Harlen mentioned but here is a link Repairing Hull-Deck Joint -Rubrail Leaks
I've written up my experience including some links that I found useful.
Steven Cyr - Stella Blue has a great summary with good photos of the root cause of the leaks and suggestions for repair.
I followed his lead and have been pleased w/ results. He also inspired me to start a boat webpage to share my experiences & adventures.
See the link in my signature - Page 4 in the Projects section is where you will find the hull-deck joint repair.
I'm happy to answer questions / share experiences.
If others have completed similar repairs it might be helpful to post them as replies to my posting..or maybe we can get a moderator to link/combine these threads to provide a more complete picture.
Also open to differing opinions & experiences if they are out there.
