Someone mention earlier about water entering via witches hat? Do you know if the under deck trunking is sealed or is perforated to allow any water to escape into hull void that can then be drained from the bung.
No trunking. It's above deck. Below deck void drains to rear well.

Usually the the seam where the tube joins the end cone, or the patch over on the bottom of the tube which is meant to stop this sort of thing. And no, the tube may not deflate

Ok, now I'm thinking....

End of last season we had the tape come away on the exterior between boat and tube. Right on the rear corner about a couple of inches long. Where would water end up?

How do you get water out of tubes?

The seam that connects the tube to the cone on some of the Humbers has a leading edge rather than a trailing edge if that makes sense which can lead to the seam being opened up by the constant passing of water over it on the underside which then fills the tube with water.
If you fully deflate the tube and hold the cone you will be able to feel it inside if this is the case.

Ah, right I understand where you mean now. Will have to check that, but our cones are covered in rubbing strake so it'll be harder to tell

It'll be happening on the lowest section of the tube cone join, the part that's in the water. I don't think this part will be covered in strake.
The seam might look intact but with a constant stream if water pushing against it it will sometimes let water in which is then unable to get out.
