One more weird aspect of this though...the floor at my feet under the helm gets wet also. Wondering if either heater under dash or bilge hose is bringing water in?? Will have to pull kick panel under helm off while underway next time.

Man, I tried using that 5200 on my deck joint - what a freakin' mess. It drips and takes a week to set up.

Use the silicone, call it a day.

If your heater was leaking, you would know it. The water coming from the heater is HOT! I know two boats this happened on and it almost burned the drivers feet. I would be surprised if your heater was leaking and getting the drivers floor wet. This would have to be such a small leak the the water would cool before it hit your feet.
