    This was something I learned early on after buying my 40. It was shared on the old Luhrs furum so I want to share it here.

    Make sure you caulk the rub rail all the way around , top and bottom. I had a mysterious leak coming down my port side galley wall. It was from the lower side of the rubrail.
    The bow rail mounts are also known to cause problems.

    This is a common problem with all used boats. Many rub rails leak . And they are hidden at times until water or rot starts bleeding through the wall covering or bulk head etc. It's also somethings the ''Oh mighty supreme sureyors'' out there seam to miss, nor bring up. Among other things they tend to miss....
