Did you overfill the fresh-water tank recently???
We also had a loose hose-clamp on the freshwater feed to the galley sink.

Subject: [AmelYachtOwners] A curious leak ….
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.
