Failure point 6 - The porthole

The wall pics above clearly show the marks from the water coming down from the porthole. The wood that was holding it in place was completely rotten and I took most of it out (the pics were taken half way through).
There are nails going from the outside through the porthole to the wood inside which suggests water and moisture can migrate from the outside - inside. I have no idea how a porthole should be constructed but it just seems like a bad system. The interesting thing is that moisture and not streams of water took that side of the wall out. For the 1 year the porthole has been standing like that, I haven't noticed any water dripping through even when it rains like crazy.
