Can you spot the problem? If you see water staining like this it should be a huge red flag. This particular boat was leaking water through the stanchion rail and anchor windlass above, and now the bulkhead you see is partially rotted, and the upholstery is soiled. The anchor locker bulkhead is a structural member as well as serving as a partition for the anchor locker, it is paramount that it is strong and well supported so it can provide rigidity to the hull. This will be expensive to fix!
