did you cover the entire back of the coamings with the strips?

I used 2" wide by 1/8" or 1/16" thick neoprene gasket behind the coaming 
(at Bug Dolber's suggestion). This has worked very well. Look up 
"gaskets" in the yellow pages to find sources. You might want to call 
around, as the prices seem to vary and for the size you need, you might 
be able to find scrap. The stuff I got had adhesive on one side.

Then I caulked the coaming/deck joint, too.
