It will leak if the sealant has failed in the joint between the edge of the deck flange and the hull. The caprail can be removed and the gap recaulked. This should last many many years. Also caulk the underside of the caprail where it meets the hull. This will prevent water from getting under the caprail. Other possible sources of leaks that are sometimes misattributed to the caprail are the side deck scupper drains, the penetration for the bolts of the headsail sheet tracks, stanchion bases, and mooring cleats. Not that it is always helpful but where are you seeing evidence of the leaks?

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!
