Darkening wood upper starboard side of forward bulkhead in forward cabin
« Reply #1 on: March 09, 2019, 04:32:53 PM »
We've noticed the past 2 years that the wood has been darkening forward bulkhead in the forward cabin near the deck on the starboard side (see picture). It looks like water damage. The yard here in Michigan (Irish Boat Shop in Charlevoix) and we can't quite figure out what might be causing it. We suspect this may be from before they did the work in the compartment forward of the berth, last winter. Everything looks well sealed in that compartment, now. However, this area doesn’t have any ventilation and therefore is keeping a lot of moisture contained, between the anchor rode in the forward locker and wet lines in the aft locker. What they propose is installing a couple of vents between the anchor locker and storage locker and then putting a solar vent in the middle of the aft hatch.

Does anyone else have experience with this condition?

Thanks, Yan and Judy
