Default Water in Cabin 1994 3200 SCR

We had a tremendous amount of rain last night and noticed the bedding in the cabin where the vberth wall meets the bed platform was wet. Any "usual" suspects I can look at fixing? The ceiling above this area was dry. Wetness was on lower wall and vberth platform.
Got to fix this before it goes in the water...
Thanks

I was thinking bow rail as well... Check for tightness and then crawl in while someone sprays water on it with a garden hose.

Check the anchor locker. The drain is tiny and unprotected, and easy to get blocked by a leaf of other debris. I found mine full one day, and it had overflowed and got that same area wet.

Hatches, Rub rail, rail stanchions, cleats. Anywhere there is a hole in your boat, the water will EVENTUALLY find its way in. Its easiests to trace in a hard rain. If you have someone use a garden hose, expect to need to shoot it at different angles for a long time. It takes a long, long time for water to wick its way in and a slow drip can take hours to reach the furthest point. Find the lowest furtherst point of a wet spot and start tracking it uphil. Water will tavel horizontally as a drip along an edge or a cable.

Godd Luck

My 3200 had a similar leak, it was coming from where the red/green navi lights are on the bow. Take a look at those as well as all the ideas above.
