Frozen Bilge Water -- Issue?


I'm seeking some comfort that the frozen bilge water I have is a non-isssue. My boat is laid up on the hard in the midwest and must have attracted some water (perhaps through the halyard lines or maybe just plain condensation) that has pooled in the bottom of the bilge. Right now the electric bilge pump is frozen up to its midpoint (hopefully there is no damage when it thaws). Boat is a Catalina 309. When its in the water, I have steadily taken a slight about of water to the bilge, which I assumed was through condensation (boat has AC), however, now I am thinking I might have a leak somewhere.

Any thoughts / advice?
