JR828 is on a distinguished road
I was suspicious of the rot as well but after I too but there was no signs that water had leached in from the port, chainplate, or any other location above the rot. Since the boat had never been used, i would suspect that I would find watermarks or drips. The reason why I suspect the shower is due to the fact that the caulking had pulled away from the vanity and base of the bulkhead in the shower and thus the water was allowed to sit around the plywood as the bulkhead is located in a fiberglass "trough". I may be wrong .
