Water in v-drive

Hello, I have a 95 Maristar with a LT1 and a v-drive. I took it to the mechanic a while back to change the fluids etc to get it ready for summer. The mechanic noticed water in the v-drive fluid-basically it looked like a milkshake. So I had him flush the unit several times and then fill it up with ATF. I took the boat to the lake today for its shakedown cruise. I put it in the water, fired it up, took the truck to the parking lot, then idled out a couple hundred yards from the ramp. Then I checked the v-drive dipstick, and sure enough, another milkshake. Any ideas on what is causing this? Thanks
