Taking on water

We took our '06 X30 out today for the first time this season, and the bilge pumps were constantly pumping out water from the minute we got into the water until 5 min. after we got out. We ran for about 20 minutes and came back. The plug was in. Where is the water coming from?

Ballast hoses might be loose or off from winterization. You can't see or hear where it is coming from?

are all hose connected tight? port block plug installed? knock sensor installed? was boat properly winterized? possible freeze plug pop? broken hose?

Check your rudder box and your shaft seal...

Ballast hose leaking? if plumbed ballast?

Only while engine was running?
There are many places for it to leak. Run it out of the water on a hose. If it doesn't leak then you've eliminated the cooling system and shower.
My X2 had a severely dry rotted and cracked main ballast intake line. I found it winterizing when I disconnected it. Would have been a big leak.

Yeah with the first time out after being winterized I'd be looking for loose hoses, block drains and the hose that drains the two exhaust manifolds. Did you take a look while you were out? A leak that big should have been very noticeable.
