Has anyone had to solve a cabin rain water leak like this one? The water appears as a drip above the freezer, where the 'ceiling above the fridge/freezer meets the vertical surface that rises to the cabin ceiling. The cockpit cubbies are dry, and I can find no path from the cockpit seating surface to the interior. Our cockpit has a full enclosure.
Any help is appreciated.

Had a similar leak on Comfort last year
I took up the teak decking on the seating and filled the screw holes with epoxy. The leak stopped. I'm going to take up all of the teak seating and replace it with flexiteek.
The fact that you have a full enclosure makes it difficult to compare.

We have a similar leak but it with the full enclosure it only shows up when we are cleaning the cockpit. I am assuming that it is coming in through the teak on the seats?

Hah! Final solved the leak. It turns out that it was some of the screw holes that attached fittings for the bottom of the dodger. The screws penetrate the hollow raised portion of the deck which runs port to starboard just ahead of the companion way opening. (Background: Vessel had a rain water leak into the area above the fridge/freezer. )
