it sounds like water intrusion into the wood, sure, let it dry out, sand lightly, more epoxy sand and paint/varnish. The bottom of the cockpit actually gets a fair amount of wear and if the kayak is transported with puddled water sitting in the sun you've got just the opportunity to discover how thick sealing coats have to be to keep water out of the wood. I'm the kind of guy who would put glass on the interior of a millcreek,,just like the Chesapeaks.
