Had same problem. I dug out the foam in cuddy, spunged the water out, mounted a plate to cover the whole in the back compartment that drains the tank area of the boat. Seems that the water getting in the back flows to the front and somehow gets trapped. I put a drain hole in the plate that I mounted so that I can drain any water from the tank area that might come in on those really wet days. two fishing trips with no water intrusion in the cuddy. Have not been out in rough seas yet, but I try to fish once every two weeks so i will report in if anything changes.
