Weep holes?

1970 Sovereign, 31'. I've been chasing some leaks between the skin on the left front. It has four vista views that appear to have been problematic in the past and are now single pane. I've recaulked the vista views with vulkem and that appears to have done the trick. Installed new D-channel on the two moving windows as the PO did not use one continuous piece. Noticed that the opening windows have 3-4 weep-holes drilled, supposedly to let water out if it gets in the lower window channel between the window and the screen. I'm finding that the holes let more water in than out, with the possibility of leaking over the latch mechanism. Are weep-holes standard on these windows? I'd like to seal them up to keep water out.

Can you post a picture or two? I might have weep holes. But I'd like to see what you are referring to.

No weep holes in my 2007 international. However, I have water accumulating in the lower channel like you describe. This channel in welded in all four corners so I suspect the water has to be coming in thru the window seals or maybe the holes in the glass where the latches and top hinge are attached. My last thought is that the water is either coming in where the latch mechanisms are bolted through the glass or where the hinge at the top of the glass is bolted thru the glass. Will keep you posted with what I find. Should know in a couple of days.
