An ex Navy and submarine mechanic, he warned of the dangers, adding young children were at special risk. You definitely need to resolve it.
Odd how water can be the indicator. I had water drops for which I could not find a cause, eventually tracing it to a high mounted genset exhaust hose defect.
Funny thing is we noticed the water before the odor. The exhaust gases seem to stay in the engine room...(that we can smell), but the water is there every time we run the engines.

FYI... it's a Carver Californian that I believe was built in the Hatteras plant during the Carver transition. She's a 48ft, 3 stateroom, aft cabin boat. Engines are smack in the middle of the boat with access through a set of stairs in the galley.
No mufflers on our boat. Just the solid fiberglass tubes that went all the way to the transom. The tube was glassed to the transom.

Get an endoscope. I was thinking aft shower sump but you said that was eliminated. How about a slow leak from aft shower supply lines.
