It probably means that there is a deck leak... probably at the chainplates, and that rainwater has made its way into the boat.

I believe I did say this in my first post, if you read it carefully.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
