You have answered one of your own questions...yes the water was there already and you shifted it around..this is obvious as you say zero has entered after words.
Condensation and rain water intrusion are the culprits then and can be successfully dealt with with proper care and maintenance.

Your craft is simple and small enough to rebuild quit inexpensively...my only covet is the barnacle on barnacles possibly ruining your gel-coat below the water line..Not a death-neall for the boat but possibly creating a need to add a barrier coat and all its associated work.

Welcome aboard and good luck in the days ahead...Its a boat...yey!..

The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.
