Water in storage compartment under V-berth 290 Sundancer
Found several inches of standing water under V-berth of my 2007 290DA. Washed out anchor locker, drains appropriately. Ran hose over all the forward exterior hardware and couldn't demonstrate leak. Any ideas out there?

The storage compartment under the V-berth. Pretty sure it's not the AC. Yesterday, we narrowed it down to hardware port and forward, maybe the rub rail. Removed two layers of screws (stainless strip and plastic underneath), filled holes with silicone and replaced. Didn't remove the plastic rub rail itself. I haven't removed the cover for the anchor locker yet, it looks like the rest of the hardware (port cleat, stanchion, windlass switches and spotlight) drain into anchor locker, but I'm not positive yet. Waiting for silicone to dry to test. I'll check tomorrow.
