Re: My cabin is weeping sticky stuff!!! Help!
A picture would be nice.
I'll assume the liquid is a darkish color?
From what part of the cabin is this ooze coming from?
If it is coming from a knee wall where the chain plates might be mounted you may have some work to do in your future.
Older boats were often made with wood encapsulated by fiberglass. Over time, water intrusion allows the wood to become moist and rot. This will create a darker color in whatever water may leak out.
Even old fiberglass resin without wood will add a tinge to water that may be coming through the laminate.
Sounds to me like you may have a wet core in your deck/cabin/hull.
