Question Engine hose water leak

I have a 1997 Mastercraft Maristar 200v with a v8 corvette engine in it. The other day I started my boat and I noticed some water leaking out of some kind of metal line that's right in front of the engine and looks like maybe a cooling for the head type of line and I can't find schematics for this engine anywhere and it's so hard to describe what this thing is... It runs out of the right big exhaust system water flow thing on the right (if you are standing and looking towards the back of the boat)... Anyone have any idea what this is because I can't figure out where to get the part and it's like a steel 1/4" pipe/brake line kind of material. When I start the boat it leaks out and drips onto my starter and i'm kind of stuck right now on how to figure this out...

I can fix anything and I really don't want to pay my marina to tow me over and fix this issue for me.

Any help, ideas or anything would be greatly appreciated.

Ok I found a picture of my engine and I put two red circles to indicate where the line starts and then where the hose connects to... I then put a straight red line over the corvette cover with a blue star over it. The red line is indication a straight steel hose and that is the part I need.. Does anyone know what this is. Thanks

That is the steam vent pipe for the heads. Read this thread:

When you fix it, you will want to move the pipe to the front end of the heads to better capture steam. You can plumb it with the factory pipe or with hoses and fittings.

Doesn't look like a v-drive to me.

Doesn't the motor sit backwards in a v-drive? Need pictures.

You can buy an Lt-1 steam tube at any chevy dealer or NAPA. Google LT-1 steam tube.
