Default 2800 water in front carpet

After a bunch of work on the boat, everything is fixed up and upgraded that I want to deal with in the short term. I noticed after several days of heavy rain that the floor carpet up by the front was fairly damp. I checked the following places:
* The storage cabinets under the front bed -- dry, everywhere
* The port side closet right behind the front bed -- wet on the carpet on the very bottom (!)
* The container under the seat right in front of that port closet - dry!

While the water tank is full, the tank hadn't been pressurized for a week or more when it went from dry to wet, so my strong suspicion is that it's water from the outside somehow. What's perplexing is how the heck it got into the carpet at the bottom of that closet, which is significantly up the side of the boat, and has no other ingress. Anyone have any ideas?...

Deck plate seal has dried out. It's a '99, correct?

It's a 99. Which deck plate seal are you talking about?

Leaks are common at the rub rail (where the deck and hull are joined) as well as cleats and rail stanchions.

I'm guessing those are all an inordinate pain in the butt to seal up? Can you fix any of those from the outside or do you need to get to the inside of each of the cleats/stanchions to take the nuts off and put back on?
