Hello Peter,
welcome to the club Angry

In fact many boats produced in the 2013/2014 timeframe had the same issue. 
At that time the dealers had to remove the old seal and replaced it with something new. 
My dealer fixed the problem a year after handover.

Hanse's "bad batch" excuse is BS. Sika is an major supplier to the automotive industry with a stringent quality system, which is frequently externally audited. There is a persistant rumour that Hanse switched to a new , most likely cheaper, supplier and reversed course when they had to fix numerous boats all over the world,

BTW, Sika HQ is based in our town, they are public listed and such a "bad batch" would have been mentioned in the annual report, if the Hanse "bad batch" fairy tale had any grain of truth.

Good Luck, it is not a bog job to scratch the old stuff out and replace it with fresh white Sika, Just ask you dealer what he uses.

I have the same issue on my two-year old boat. It’s all over the top-side joints.

I have had the same on our 370 from 2006, only there the sika is between hul and alu rail.
I removed it and replaced it bij Black sika 371i after I primered it.
Black because it does not get wear and tear.
