Iíve been curious what everyone would say is your problem. I have the same problem. My boat is a 2018 and Iím guessing but, from the factory it has a small bilge pump up in the v-berth. I at first didnít understand why a bilge pump would there. But and Iím guessing again I think itís for the condensation that builds up in there. I sleep a lot in the v-berth and Iím thinking itís from that.


Good luck on your hunt, but could it be as simple as condensation

Re: Water in the foreword berth compartment

the compression post or the boot on the cabin top is a likely candidate.

Re: Water in the foreword berth compartment

I spent months chasing rain water leaks in my Catalina 30.

Is is AMAZING how much water can enter through a single leaking screw through the deck.

I suggest sitting inside the boat during a heavy rain to detect the leak(s).

You can try spraying water from a garden hose, however for some reason I found that rain is more persuasive (opportunistic?) in finding the tiniest of opportunities to sneak into the boat.

Cheers.

Re: Water in the foreword berth compartment

You are on a boat. taste the water. It will be fresh and it's condensation.
Ventilate the compartment!
