Craribe dinghy water leak

I have a dinghy leak that I need assistance trouble shooting. The dinghy is a model L10 purchased in December 2018.

This model Caribe does not have the more traditional double bottom. The leak showed up when I pulled it out of the water using it's bow fitting. When it was in a vertical position water ran out of the top the transom for more than 5 minutes where there is joint. The water was clear and appeared to be freshwater (there was no odor).

There is no fitting to drain water from between the fiberglass layers like there would be in a double hull model.

I am fairly sure the transom has a wood core. I doubt the joint is the source of all this water though it most have contributed to it.

Has anyone else had this type of leak? If so what was it's source?
