Water in the console did that to mine. I keep it dry in there and spray a bit of WDF around occasionally. That seems to cure it.

We always seem to get alot of water in our anchor locker , even if the anchor is bone dry b4 it goes back in there, quite strange , and extremly difficult to get rid of. Have found scoopin it up in cup fulls is the best way.

Could possibly be rainwater, if the boat is kept outside uncovered. Alternatively check the security of the bow eye, it maybe possible that this is unsecure and causing water to enter the bow locker. A bit of silicone of mastick will cure it.

I don't think you will ever stop this unless you fit an anti-condensation heater (or an illumination lamp) to the instrument.
If they are not sealed the lenses will fog as the suspended water in the air condenses on the colder instrument face.
Happens all the time with mine until I switch on the nav lights, the instruments all illuminate and 3 minutes later are all clear.

Try it
