Exclamation Leaking prop shaft when rinsing boat

I have a Mastercraft X-star 2006 SS with closed cooling system. When I am rinsing the cooling sytem with a sure-flo and garden hose... I have a substantial amount of water coming out of the drive shaft under the boat. There is also plenty of water coming out of the exhaust. What would be causing the cooling water to be coming out of the drive shaft? Is there a cooling line that runs into the transmission area? The boat also takes on some water, so I assume the shaft seal needs tightening or replacement?

No drip seal instead of standard packing. Water from cooling system flows though it and out the boat to cool the mechanical seal faces. As others have said, normal...

Agreed that this is normal. My dripless shaft seal looks like this as the manifolds drain.

Very different than the older rope packing, and it freaked me out too at first!
