Leak in Cabin

Feb 6, 2016
Has anyone experienced water leaking into the cabin from behind the electrical panel?
After a rain, there in a slight line of water leaking down the portside interior hull from behind the panel.
I have looked all over the side and cannot determine where its coming from.
My only guess is that its possibly from the stanchion that's fairly close to the location. Any ideas?

I assume your boat is a MK II with the electrical panel mounted on the cabin top. The inboard tracks seems like a good place to start. Both sides.
The turning blocks could be another source of the leak

Good luck.

I have moved/changed so many things on my 1985 Capri fin keel, standard rig that it leaks all over the deck and topsides down both sides! One of these days, I'll get around to it (yeah, been saying that mantra for ten years now) with caulk or seating materials.

I'd rather be sailing and then it's too cold or wet during the non-sailing seasons.

I have put my 89 Capri 22 in the water for the first time in 9 years
I also have leaking along junction of deck and top sides, This seemed to start after stepping mast but chain plate seems dry. Next option is stantions or the rub rail screws. Any thoughts?
