Re: Mystery water in bilge in CAL-29

These are all good suggestions. The water tank does seem very likely - it has a vent in the top of it, of course, so having spillage when heeled or rolling is just about unavoidalbe - but you may well be hesitant to taste the bilge water. So, instead, drain most of the water from your tank, maybe filling a couple of gallon jugs to take with you next sail. If you still have water in the bilge afterwards, keep looking at the other suspects.
