Re: What would cause this?

Thanks everyone... and I think I know what is wrong!
When we came aboard, we had to board at the bow and stepped onto to the cover of the anchor locker. It was spongy and the owner said it could use replacing but has not been a problem to date. Can that cause that much moisture to dampen the V-berth lockers below?

Thanks again,

Re: What would cause this?

Something is fishy with the owner's story. The smell we all associate with wet paint is the solvents in the paint evaporating as the paint cures. once the paint cures and has been dry for a period of time, getting it wet again should not cause it to come off, and it certainly won't get that "fresh paint" smell again!

I think the guy is hiding something!

Yeah, If that much water/moisture from the anchor locker is getting into the v-berth, for me, it's a good reason to run away. ShockT has it right about paint & I agree something doesn't seem kosher.
