Is there a seal or something on the trans that might have let loose or is it time for a rebuild?

Could be a front or rear trans. seal. A leaking hose/fitting. I had one, that leaked right where the fitting is attached to the hose, at the trans cooler. Dry/Clean out your bilge, put newspaper, paper towels under trans, and wait.

Your boat is over 20 years old, a rebuild is not out of the question. I just did mine, about a month ago. It's not that hard.

2004 Red/White/Black something or other.
