OCDing on a wet bilge is a bad thing.

if you’ve ever had a traditional shaft/prop boat you’ve probably never had a dry bilge.

water can make its way to a bilge many different ways, anchor locker, bilge pump discharge thru hull (rolly boat in rocky seas), anchor wildcat/winch access (running in sloppy seas taking water over bow).

its better to accept and let be that a couple cups of water is fine. Larger amounts of water and cycles of the bilge pump is not fine and should be traced.
