    NO, it's getting wet because the joint is too tight and with heating and cooling cycles it expands and has nowhere to expand to and is lifting allowing water to get underneath......as shown by the black drip line in the lower right bung. I would've sliced the joint open more and then filled with the wood colored putty designed to fill joints. At this point in the game, I would try recaulking where it meets the fiberglass.
