The water can be quite small, so I don’t think you’d see it seeping out. For an iron keel, you might see rust at the joint. However, that could be as simple as surface rust from the slight separation, or a penetration that reaches the bolts. No way to visually know.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
