Water in the Engine Compartment

So I have a 1990 Prostar 190 that has been in the water for 2 weeks now. I live in the southeast and we've got a ton of ran lately (20 straight days). I've been on the boat just about every day during short dry spurts. Every time I get in the boat there is a couple inches of water in the engine compartment. The water pump has a small leak that I am going to fix this weekend, but I doubt it is dripping this much water into the boat. Anyone have any ideas on where this water could come from? Is there any chance it could be coming from the exhaust pipes? Whenever I dock it it sounds like water is getting under the exhaust caps. I can reach down and put pressure on the cap and the noise stops. Any help is greatly appreciated. I don't have pictures at this time but I will post them when I get them.
