I have a small water infiltration problem on the starboard side. Water seems to come in from the arch and makes its way to the Aft cabin. The previous owners tried to fix the problem with expanding foam, but obviously it no longer works. Water was accumulating in the arch, so I took some of the caulking out to let the water out of the arch. I also sprayed some waterproofing rubber on top of the foam as a temporary measure, which seems to help, but still a bit of water coming in. Anyone with a suggestion or a solution?

Also, believe it or not, I can't find replacement plastic caps (bolt holes covers) for the arch (Photo attached). Any leads?

For the covers you could look here www.essentracomponents.com/en-ca/search?...ALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds
As for the leak perhaps fill the gap with rubber or foam gasket and caulk
