I'm going to go through all the things mentioned this weekend and thanks for the responses.

I was curious about those bumpers causing stress, but I thought it might protect in a worst case scenario situation and then just make a habit of not raising the deck all the way up. However, I couldn't get the bumpers to stick to the gelcoat so I'm wondering if a bead of silicone will work just as well.

Regardless, I hope that I can find the source of the problem and not have to rely on anything else.
