Did you check your shower sump pump? If it is not working, either the float switch or the pump or both, are bad. Your AC condensate is going to the sump, filling the box, and leaking into the bilge. Good luck.

cooler, all pumps are working fine. water in bilge issue is resolved, I think it was just combination of small pockets of water coming from shower and swim platform. I sealed and replaced some old parts. Also the hand grab thingy on swim platform was cracked and leaking in, and there was always in that, from rain and from swim platform getting splashed when in motion. So I found it at west marine (HARKEN) and replaced it. All good now.

Believe I found my issue. Raised AC drip pan with another 3/8" rubber on the low end to force water to go to the drain on the other end. Also found that a raw water cooling hose at the AC unit was cracked and dripping both in and out of the AC drip pan. Recheck next week!
