Sounds to me like a valve that is stuck in the open position. I assume it is not draining out of the drain hole in the side of the boat.

Like snork said, check your impellers. If they aren't green, replace them with the green ones.

If they aren't dumping into your bilge, the only way they can be draining is out the bottom of the boat. The impellers are supposed to prevent that form happening. If they are worn out they could be letting the water out. Also, I think the yellow ones had problems with this and the upgrade to the green ones will fix it.
