Default donzi 38 zx cabin water leak

I have been chasing down a water leak inside my cabin area on my donzi zx Under the seat in the center bench area where the air filter goes for the air conditioner fill up with water after it rains. I thought it was the anchor box, I resealed it, put a new cover where you gain access to the tow hook under the anchor box, sealed that cover and made sure the drain is cleared out. It seems the water fills up under the ac unit, there are 2 cover on the a/c unit that I can see it will up with water. I can not for the life of me find where it is coming from, I have made sure the hatches are not leaking. it only happens when it rains. any ideas???? Thanks

Do you have a winless anchor? I traced mine down to water was coming in the winless unit itself and anchor line was over drain. It slowly leaked around drain. I stuck a plastic bag in winless and that fixed it.

Any pop up or pull up cleats that may have no drain hoses attached? Water getting in at rubrail?
