How much Hull water should cause concern?

I've tried the search function but haven't found what I'm looking for. I have an '06 X2 and I'm starting to take on more water than usual. 2yrs ago it would be almost dry after a couple hours of use. Now my front bilge sometimes kicks on once or twice for just a few seconds or so within an hour. From my search it doesn't seem to be an issue yet but once I pull the center drain plug it does drain for minutes and used to be less than 30" or so.

I've investigated the hose leaks, shaft seal, etc.. and can't find a source yet. Based on all your experience would any of you be concerned??

Do you have a dripless shaft seal or a conventional one? With a conventional that sounds about normal to may need a repack soon. If it's dripless then I still wouldn't stop until I found the source. You're not going to sink or anything catastrophic but I'd still want to know.

I had an 06 X2 that did the same thing. I had 2 issues causing the water buildup. The metal strap that held the hose on the raw water pump wasn't tight enough and water was dripping from it when the motor was running. The higher the RPM's the more water it would shoot into the boat. Also, my rudder port was leaking. I had to send it off to have it rebuilt. Once I corrected those issues we were good to go.

I have the same issue. I saw water dipping from the intake of the raw water pump. I need to check the metal strap. but im not sure if i also have my dripless seal leaking not really a good way to check if it is leaking or not. I know at the end of the day it dips water down the outside of the Haul and drive shaft for 10 mins or so. Not sure if that is normal or not.

I had the problem with a pinhole in a hose to the heater core. Under the floor, you couldn't see it until the hose was pulled out.

Can always put the boat on the trailer and put a garden hose in the hull and start filling it and see if water comes out anywgere

I must say that I'm not the original owner and I'm not sure what type of seal I have...how would I check to determine??

I'll check this but I didn't see anything dripping. Maybe it's the shaft seal or rudder.
