Default 4600 SCB Water Intrusion into State Room

During heavy rains water the stateroom carpet between the head and the foot of the bed is getting soaked. It is coming down the side of the hull in front of the closet. I am also getting some in the guest room and at one point had some under the hardwood floor in the galley. I suspect it is the window seals but does anyone have any ideas ?

Check rub rail, cleats and deck stanchions.

My leaks were from the rail stanchions. The water, once in can run down the along the sides. My wet spot was under the dinette

What did you do to stop the leaks from your rail stanchions? I am leaking through my light fixtures in the master bath. Resealed windshields but still leaking. I have not figured it out yet. Fortunate that it has only leaked into the bath.

Since I couldn't remove them and seal underneath I ran a bead of clear silicone around the edge. It did the trick
