Was the water in the bilge warm or hot? That should be your clue as to whether it is the exhaust system.

Inspected the waterlift muffler and exhaust hose while at the dock in neutral.   Not enough crew to inspect while underway.   Intake hose looks okay.  May give the intake filter a better look.  Stuffing box looked good underway, neutral and stopped. 

If the mixing elbow was plugged water wouldnt go into the boat would it?

Did you inspect the suspected "waterlift" muffler and exhaust hoses while the engine was running?

And I assumed you inspected the water intake hoses etc when you say you inspected hoses.

Did you check the stuffing box with the engine in gear?

Listers I need troubleshooting help.  

I splashed the boat today.  My summer marina is about 29 miles away.  Everything was going well until about four miles from the dock, the boat started taking on water .  It went above the floorboards very quickly.  We managed to control it with the manual gusher pump. 

Lifted the boat out and inspected  with no problems found.  It was coming in quite strongly while underway but stopped once in the marina. 

I suspect the exhaust can (correct name please ) or the exhaust hose.   I ran the engine at 2300 rpm at the dock and inspected the hoses etc.    but nothing found and no leaks to give away the problem   The exhaust does not sound normal.  usually has that slug of water type exhaust.   Now has water draining out but a pure exhaust gas sound with no slugs as normal.

Anything to try to isolate this problem?  Places to buy the hose and or exhaust can.
