Hey Bene505,
It looks like it is going to be time for a bottom job on your boat. I would offer to help you do this but I am pretty sure that Brewer's Marina does not allow you to do this kind of work for yourself (I hope I am wrong about this but I suspect it is in your contract with them).
Are those 'weep' holes in what you called your 'basement'? One of the real questions is how is the water getting in there in the first place? Condensation and/or some other way? Fixing the weep holes is not such a difficult task with some sanding, new epoxy and glass introduced to the offending areas. Brewer's would probably love to have this work too but since it is inside the boat you can probably do it yourself (yes, I am offering to help out).
PM, email or call me if interested.
