[alberg30] Water leaks

I agree with Russ that your leaks are most likely the chainplates.
In fact, you might consider pulling them and checking the knees
they're bolted to.  You don't want to lose the rig due to rotten
knees.  And, while you're at it, if you've still got the original
1/4" bolts, change them to 5/16" or double the number of them.
Those bolts are the weak link in the rig.  You should also make
sure that your bolts have solid, not threaded, shanks where they
pass through the chainplates.
