I was getting the boat ready to wakeboard, and I open the hatch to fill the fat sacs and there was water up to the carpet in the bilge. I lowered the boat into the water and started it, nothing. So I took it for a spin the drive shaft leaked maybe 2 drips a second. At about 1500-2000 rpms and it was almost a steady stream.I don't remember if its the packing nut or not, so whatever you tighten i need to know what it is. Any help is appreciated,
