One of my deck drains is leaking into the quarter cabin. The drain is hard to access even with the cabinetry removed and I think I will have to cut out the existing drain, perhaps with a  vibratory cutter, and replace it, maybe with a bronze elbow. Has anyone done this?

Is the elbow cracked! 
Otherwise rebed the drain. It has been a while but I don't remember a deck drain?  Only in the deck storage in the bow and cockpit drains. 
Are u talking about the scuppers?

I thought I had that problem too. But it turned out to be the rear starboard Hauser.

I had water in that location only when heeling.  Turned out to be a leak in a hose connection between the midships deck drain to the sea cock located aft of the cockpit.  On heeling, the water traveled forward along where the hose runs. As far as I could identify the deck drains are fiberglassed to the deck with a short segment of fiberglass pipe before connecting to the drain hose.  Limited access to this pipe and hose connection through the navigation panel - the layout on this CaboRico has a nav station and storage in place of the quarter cabin.  Can you identify the leak precise source of the leak? Would be much easier to fix a hose/connection than a crack in the fiberglass pipe.
