'Wet Rot', Dry Rot... NO Rot!
The term 'wet rot' in timber is a misnomer - rot is caused by microbial organisms consuming the lignin component of the timber, but they are only active in the presence of sufficient water and oxygen.  Rot organisms require at least 18% moisture content to survive.  "Dry" timber normally contains about 12% moisture content, so the organisms are inactive and only propagate when the timber becomes saturated with fresh water.
 Wooden boats in Salt water are protected from rot and it is a time proven practice to throw a couple of buckets of salt water in the bilge regularly to ensure rot is kept at bay.
