Leaking engine bed?

I have a factory installed 3gm30fs on my Outremer 45 coupled to SD 20 saildrives. I had seepage from one of the engine mount bolts that go into the engine bed. To stop the leak I re installed the bolt with a lot of sealant. I believe that there must be a Crack at the interface of the hull and the engine bed.
Any thoughts

Re: Leaking engine bed?

I would guess a haul out and hull inspection should be your next step, and then repair or replace the stringer.
