Resealing the genoa track did NOT fix the leak. I was at the boat on Sunday and had wet compartments again. Dried off the track and cap rail (rain) and 6 hours later the water was still dripping -- about a silver dollar size puddle in a hour.

Looking at Bill Shaw's work on S-V Galena on his web site at http://sv-galena.livejournal.com/20641.html#cutid1 -- find his sketch of the real cap rail construction on the lower part of his post -- I believe that I have a pond situation under the cap rail.

Special thanks to Bill Shaw for the help and a great web/blog site.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!

See the full list here!
