Forward cabin leak


John Facci
 

I have slight moisture ingress into the top of the port cupboards in the forward cabin.
I don't think its the windows as the leak is forward (and uphill) of them. moisture is evident from open cupboard holding the circuit breakers  to the open shelf between the two sets of cupboards.
Has anyone had this issue before?

Hello John,
 I had a problem on my Sharki, that sounds like yours.
 It was a tube for the cable from the windlass and navigation lights to the electronic board on the portside.
This tube wasn‘t completely closed with silicone.  And so, drops of rain or waves came into the same cupboard.

Best wishes

I think it comes from the hole for the security rope for the forward locker...your locker seals are not sealing.....
Ask me how I know this!

Hi John,

We had a similar problem. It turned out to be some loosening of the forward-most screw holding the metal strip above the glass (outside). I’m not on the boat and don’t know for sure if that is forward from your leak is.

I had this problem.  the leak was from the side trim forward of the windows.  I fixed it temporarily with sealant around the trim.  A proper fix will require removing the large wooden trim forward of the windows and tightening and sealing the trough bolts.
