After several hours of sailing I end up with several cups (more than I think should be there) worth of water in the starboard hull. Anyone have any idea where that water could be coming from?

Drain plugs both seat well and are tight. I seriously doubt that much water could be coming over either of the front or rear storage compartments, I"m not sure if those seams drain into the hulls?

Although I do get the bow leeward carrying handles into the water when hiked out.. it doesn't seem as those could be leaking? Where else could it come from?

I don't think these hulls 'breathe' like the fiberglass boats do they? Any ideas?

You can do a leak test as shown in this forums FAQ (top - topic).

Check all fittings. Check the inboard side of the hulls. There is a small cap adheared over a vent. Maybe loose?
