GH31 bad leak: quarter berth, from cockpit...somewhere

Hello all

We have been hunting a persistent leak on Marschallin, GH31, 1981 GRP, which we launched last Saturday. Despite thinking we've found the source on many occasions, and 'fixing' it, it's no better. It seems to have been a long-standing problem in the boat from before we bought her, and I wondered whether it's something known to other GH31 owners.

Water is coming into the forward end of the quarter berth next to the chart table from the cockpit somewhere. We think it's to do with gaps around the teak cockpit seats, with the water running forward over the top of the fibreglass. No amount of sealing has worked there yet.

Has anyone encountered this before? Has anyone managed to fix it?

Any advice is very gratefully received.

See you never had any response to this plea and I have to say I have not heard of any other GH owners suffering from a leak here.

As she is GRP you would not expect any leaks!

However I have heard of cockpit locker lid drains bunging up and wonder if there is a blocked drain somewhere.

Hope by now you may have traced the leak, if so can you let us know what the remedy was.
