A floating boat, with a dead battery is better than a, sunk boat with a good battery.

You said, "the boat in the water and nearly daily showers." Doesn't take much rain, even with a cover, to fill the bilge with water. (Mine completely filled Sunday nite, with a two hour rain. My boat was on the trailer, and it was time to clean the bilge...so I dump some deterent in and let it rain. It was completely full, including ski storage locker.)

Other than that, yep packing gland (shaft) couple of drips every minute when turning, is fine. Zero when sitting. Cracked mufflers, easy to fix. Old water lines, weeping, etc.
