I am not familiar with your boat. However, speaking in general terms, usually to stop a (window or port) leak, the "offender" must be removed, everything cleaned up really well, and then reinstalled with new caulking. For new caulking I would suggest Sikaflex 291 or Butyl Tape, unless the window manufacturer recommends something else. For example, Beckson (for their plastic ports) recommends a specific silicone sealant (not something I would normally use if not for this specific recommendation).
Good luck.
