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.
