    3288 Lower berth wet floor-gctid801402

    After the big rain this week my lower berth floor was wet. I found water dripping inside the hanging closet. I waited for the rain to stop and turned my boat around to take the black plexiglass off the back corner. The previous owner did work replacing the wood that shows in the inner corner of the cockpit. Photos show the black plexiglass off. Previous work wasn't sealed very well with black butyl tape. I dried the wood as best I could for now and sealed with silicone all around the window frame.

    After seeing yours, I best remove mine and reseal.

      It's raining again. I woke up early to check the hanging closet. Water is dripping into the bucket I left there. Time to look for other sources of the leak.

        I would check the aluminium window tracks to make sure that they are not clogged with bugs or leaves.

        They act as gutters and will overspill inside the boat. The water could easily follow to the closet.

          I cleaned out the window tracks before resealing the black plexiglass .

            Joe,

            I found mine was the very small triangle piece of wood above the plexiglass. Took it off and it was wide open. Had leaks on both sides.

              I was at the boat again today. I saw a small triangle piece of wood on top of the window frame. The wood was wet, so that is my next area to work on. I think the water is going over the top of the window frame and entering from the backside.

                My black plexiglass is cracked on my 3288. No water in the master berth that shows but after the 2 months of record rainfall in the Pacific Northwest...might be time to replace and reseal.

                Thanks for the post!

                  If you have the window channel flocking above the black panel, remove it. I had a leak on the opposite side that took me months to figure out. Rain was dripping over the window frame and wicking up and in between the black panel and the wood panel in side the salon. No leaks since removing the flocking.
