    Hi

    I had similar leaks and found it was coming in through the rain gutter screws at the top of the windows. It was so bad not only did I re-bed the gutter but the wood (wrapped in vinyl) that is located on top of the windows behind the teak skirt was completely rotted and had to be replaced. That was a little tricky to do since the windows are bolted into that wood. But its do-able. I did one side at a time and put some temporary bracing up (from salon floor to ceiling) to support the bridge when I did it. I re-installed cedar wood coated with epoxy resign.

    Good luck

      Thank you very much for the information. When it comes to rain is it the A of the picture? (my English is not very good and some terms are hard to understand me). If so, to prevent entry of water, could you remove the screws sealed with Sikaflex and bring them back?. Another question is whether there is any solution to stain B. The clean and come out again. thanks again

        Yes that is what I rebed, I used Life Caulk, but I am sure Sikaflex is good.

        Regarding the stains in "B", they don't look to bad, just a cleaner wax or if that does not work a rubbing compound should take it out. If I remember those stains are where the weep holes are that the deck of the fly bridge drain. Make sure they are clean. If not water will wick up and rot the radar arch wood. ( I did that project also). Just use a hose to clean it out.

          I have had similar leaks and the gutter and the bridge to top trim have been the cause

            You should also remove, rebed, and reinstall that trim above stain "b". That trim is often the leak source also.

              I had similar leaks along with water dripping from the florescent light on port and starboard behind the teak trim. I removed both the rain gutter and the trim piece shielding the joint of the flybridge. Once you have this trim piece off you will find long screws that hold the fly bridge to the deck. remove and rebed all of these. I used 3M 5200 aggressively pushing into holes. Be sure and clean all of the sealant on the back side of these metal trim pieces before reinstalling and take care not to bend them. I sleep well knowing it is now done right...and a lot less wet in the cabin

                I've done everything I have recommended, now I have to wait and check the leak has stopped. Just one question to tighten the long screws that hold the Fly, is it necessary to remove the seats fly to access them?

                  The screws that hold the flybridge to the top of the windows are behind the metal trim.
