Where does bilge water come from?

My Cal 28 has been up on jackstands since last fall. When I took the cover off this spring there was water in the bilge. I emptied it and then there was some more after a torrential rainstorm recently.

Where, specifically, does bilge water come from? How the heck does it end up in the bilge? I usually get very general answers to this, like: boats have many places that water can leak into.

Any concrete ideas would really be appreciated!
