odd water collection spot

ive been working on taking off the pop rivets that attach the twisty hasp deals that attach to the dodger. one was loose, when i got it off, about a quart of water oozed out.... ruh ro. oddly, the only sign of this in the cabin was a slow drip leak that only appears during rain where a wooden pole that holds the ships bell and wall that seperates the quarter berth from the settee. attaches to the roof

none of the lower rivets exhibited this behavior, only on the top.

so... 1. do i assume the water got in via the loose rivet?
2. or possibly somehow through the companionway sliding hatch?
3. how do i insure the water is gone? (i was thinking of using a turkey
baster, or epoxy syringe to suck it out)
4. what do i do next? just squirt a bunch of epoxy in there?

any help is appreciated, as i left the hole open and weather is blowing in!!

Tough to envision what you're describing.. are you saying that the dodger clips were pop-riveted into the deck? If so that's most unusual and seems unwise.

If the water "oozed out" that implies some internal pressure... and water below as well indicates that you may well have some wet coring in that area.

Pictures would be a big help here...
