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.
To add. Exhaust flap noise, when sitting is normal, no problem. The bilge pump, will not get bilge completely dry. Only way to do that, is on the trailer or lift with plug pulled.
