Weep Holes

I have a 1983 36 albin trawler. I have just bought it, where are the weep holes located in the windows. I am having some leaks and was told to look for the weep holes and make sure they are open ...the PO had painted the outside of the teak frame on the windows .... thanks

Not sure but most are in the bottom rear of each window. I'm assuming they are sliding windows if not there should be one in lower frame on each end. PO might have painted over them. duh??

Sliding windows are pretty much guaranteed to leak if the weep holes aren't clear and they should be rechecked yearly.
