You need to determine the location that the water is coming from. This area of the bilge is the lowest point between the bow and the watertight bulkhead. So any leak from anywhere will accumulate here. I suggest that you dry this area completely and then create a dam of some sort of powder encircling where the pool of water is shown. This will allow you to determine which direction it is coming from. Also, take paper towels and place them around suspicious pipes, hoses, and fittings. Monitor all of these closely and within a few days, you will know much more.

Let me know what you find.

I think the the explanation from Joel is better than any Photo :-)
I didn't know that the water seepage capture system does not exist on all the SM. Now I understand those discussion. But it doesn't explain where I get this water. A month ago after a bumpi sail I found a lot of water. Cleaning it up and a bunpi sail later, there is no water.....The salt water hoses under the floor of the front head cabinet are dry.
