Its not uncommon ... there are a number of holes (6 in the inner hull under the gas tank that are there to anchor the rubber mat to the hull with plastic fasteners). There are also a few other places where the inner hull has hardware attached and water can seep in between the inner and outer hull. If you get water in the hull it will leak down between the two hull layers and get trapped.
When I cut open my inner hull to fix the potential delamination issue I found some water in there too. I suspect most RXP/Ts have some water in there ...
A couple threads with hull info:

That doesn't sound very good if you live in the colder states - water being trapped between the inner/outer hull then it freezes... Ron

Mabe the freezing is the real source of the delamination problem
