Granpafish, he means that the hawsepipe opening should face forward
(the gap when it is closed though it isn't likely to be in
backwards).

Everything said so far is true to check.

The rubrail area has let water into my main cabin before, not in the
vee, and I found two screws that were the problem. There are screws
and bolts with lock nuts. The screws are usually the problem.

Also the water has to drain into the bilge when you take a wave and
water gets into the anchor locker, or every time you use the anchor
line and put it away. Mud, sand, seaweed, leaves, etc. can clog it.

Since you say it is also from the deck in the last e-mail, make sure
your hatches all are closed and sealed. Make sure anything you've
added that required a hole isn't leaking.
