:?: 2007 OUTBACK :evil: getting soaking wet carpet on drivers side under carpet. I see that a little water comes in from through hull horn vent but not that much and has no path back to below console . Also see dripps of h2o coming from bottom of recessed cleat mount, but we're talking sopping wett carpet almost standing water. Water Appears to be coming from seem between deck and hull !! or abouts from level of rub rail and running down inside of hull. I watched closely while in a sharp rt hand turn and water definitely pushes hard all the way up to the rail but shold it be coming in? Also pulled plug and emptied bilge completely to make sure not coming from undrneath! Does ne one know exactly how the hull/ deck is bonded? Supposed to be water tight Im assuming! How bout where the rub rail screws come through deck/hull? I can see day light through where rub rail is mounted! Should the Glass be overlapped and sealed And the screws caulked to seal? How thick should the glass be at that point in the boat? ONLY 16 hrs on boat and Im afraid my new baby may be built like @#$% ! Any info would be appriciated!!!
