First issue not a big deal. My boat is a trailer queen first off. Whenever I am done for the week I completely dry the carpet with my wetvac and then let it sit for a day or so in the sun to completely dry it. What I am finding though is when I take off the covers to use the boat, the left rear corners is a bit wet. I can only assume it is from condensation and it is gathering there because of the angle of the boat. What do I do? I am worried about floor rot. It is not standing water but over time it may be an issue. A towel maybe? Any suggestions would help.

Now the big problem. A few weeks after I bought my boat (March 08) I noticed small hairline cracks under the right side rear seat, I posted pics and pretty much everyone said it is superficial and not an issue. I looked today and there are many more cracks and some look deep. I can only assume the boat is no longer under warranty so how do I seal them/Fix them? I am posting pics.

Isn't their hull warranty 5 years?
If its structural, they should fix it.
However, what do I know?

You are right it is 5 years but I do not think this is a structural problem, it is just the coating on the plywood. I am most concerned about water intrusion and wood rot down the road.
