Leaking

Catalina Capri 22 Westbrook, CT
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?

Congratulations on splashing your boat!! Might find the article entitled "expert-advice/tracing-tricky-leaks-on-a-boat" and SBO thread on Catalina 22 leak helpful as a start.

Before my Capri goes back in I wanted to pull stantions and chain plates to recaulk and seal I believe main leak are my chain plates. What calking material do you recommend and are there a rubber type gasket that I could add.

@Maine Sail's article is the best place to start:
You can order high-quality butyl from his site.
