Rot requires a certain moisture content, too dry , no problem, too wet , no problem.

Thats why leaks cause rot , sometime during the leak or during the dry out the water content can be perfect, for rot.

Sometimes insulation will cause water to form behind it , more rot.

Repairing leaks helps , replacing calking or seal goop before it fails is great PM..

The old Herrishoff trick of using ceilings to ventilate the hull works fine.
