One thing I learned from our surveyor: hoist the boat and store dry. Come next day (early, if hot climate) and look closely at all joints: thruhulls, log/echo senders, keel to hull, rudder attachment, ruder foil, etc.

If the hull is dry but there are wet spots round the aforementioned places - might be a sign that water penetrated there - investigate each and every case.

And that's exactly how I found a leaking stern tube at the outer skin of a cored hull.
It was well mounted on the inside skin but the out side only had filler around it.
Poor craftsmanship or shortcuts, an example of things one has to watch out for.

barnkiel - to add to your post - . When I hoisted a boat there were plenty of "bubbles". They disappeared after one hour when the hull dried. It was difficult to spot any water marks. I was lucky to be present when the boat was lifted. I would suggest to check the hull when is wet and dry.
