a repeating theme

This is something that is so easily prevented, for the time and money spent using such high quality materials it's a shame to allow it to happen because of a misguided instruction that adequate applications of seal coats adds unnecessary weight. One might as well paint the exterior with two coats of white paint if one sealing coat is all thats being used to prevent water intrusion from the interior.
All it takes is light multiple seal coats. The Arctic Hawk is assembled with pre-sealed and in some cases pre-glassed panels.
from that thread you linked:
Thanks for the advice, condensation combined with thin areas of epoxy could certainly be the culprit here. It does appear as a very dark green color. It is a bit of a let down after 8 coats of varnish on the deck to lose the battle as the result of an attack from below... We will continue to dry the areas and apply another coat of epoxy to the underside of the deck.
