Re: A curious leak ….

If you have a dishwasher, check that. Same thing happened, looked everywhere. Opened the dishwasher and it was full of water.

There's a cold beer / glass of wine for anyone who can solve this mystery . 
 Today we found fresh water in the bilge to port. Maybe 10-15 litres. The water was in the bilge under the sink and also in the bilge on the aft side of the table . Nowhere else.
The usual suspects proved innocent -- being the Seagull water filter ( previously guilty ) the galley tap and the drain pipes from both sinks . 

We  store wine bottles in a plastic box in the bilge under the aft side of the table . The box has sides about 12 inches , 25 cm , high. It doesn't leak . Somehow  about one litre of the fresh water found its way inside the box  even though it was only about 2 inches deep in the bilge . 

If there was a fresh water pipe leaking you would expect the pump to run occasionally. It doesn't . 

My next test is the washing machine despite the water in the bilge being clean of suds etc . Even if that is the culprit how did water get into the wine box ? 

I will report on the answer but if anyone can suggest a solution to the mystery that would be very welcome.
