Should I be suspect of anything here? What should I look for as far as any water damage?

It appears to be a high quality, properly installed seacock. Make sure the valve is not frozen and the handle turns smoothly. What kind of water damage would there be?

Looks pretty clean. Are you concerned with the absorption pads. Probably there to catch any oil that might spill or drip or is there another part to the story.

How about bonding? I don't see a bonding wire in the picture. That could lead to corrosion if there are electrical issues.

Excellent pick-up The fitting should be tied into the bonding system. Also is the hull cored? If so was the surrounding area treated properly so that the filling is mounted in solid fill and not compressing core.
