    I have water showing up on top of my engine cover panels under the cushions. I first though it was the air vent for the pss shaft seal that terminates inside and at the very top of the sink cabinet. There doesn't seem to be any moisture inside the cabinet, it is only on the out side. The wetness typically shows up after a rain storm. I have examined the companion way hatch after a rain and have found no moisture around it, so I'm not sure how the covers get wet. If anyone has seen this I would really be greatfull to know if you were able to track this leak down.

    how about your exhaust riser loop? other than sink, that's the only other water source i can think of in that area.
