That's interesting. If the area (I assume you are talking about the bridge deck (between the hulls on a catamaran, as opposed to aft of the the companion way of a mono), but I don't know the layout of the Prout).
You say that area is normally above the water. If wave action was entering through a breach, I'd sort of expect the water to run back out. Unless it's splashing over something and getting trapped. Or coming in from above, and getting trapped. I gather your hulls (pontoons) are dry?
Assuming you are in salt water, have you confirmed the water is salt? (as opposed to stored fresh water, rain water, etc).
Do you have anything running that pumps water on board? (i.e. engine, generator, a/c, heat pump, water-cooled fridge?). Could it be leaking? Any through hull fixtures on the bridge deck? Do you have a single engine on the bridge deck or twin engines in the hulls?
Can you inspect the underside of the bridge deck while the boat is in the water?
If the problem persists and you can't find the source, I'd personally be concerned about waiting until spring to haul it.
