No, it doesn't drip into the boat, LOL ROFLMAO WAI. Spend a minute or two engaging your brain and you'll figure it out.

There is a water line that goes from the water pump to the dripless seal. The water that gets pumped down the line is intended to make sure that the seal is cooled and lubricated; the water hits the seal and is expelled outside the boat. Without the water line, an air bubble can form in the seal causing excess heat and wear. So, when you run the boat in the driveway with a hose hooked up, you're going to see water coming out of the seal and splashing on the ground. But in a properly functioning seal none of it should end up in the boat.
