i noticed the other day that my feet were getting wet when I was driving the boat. I first thought I needed to flip the bilge on, but when that didn't pump water out, I started investigating. I noticed that ONLY when I started the motor, did it leak. A constant drip while motor is running, even in idle. As soon as I turn it off....the drip stops. Only thing that has anything to do with the motor that's under there is the steering cables. I'm baffled at why this is happening, Anyone ever have this happen?

If it happens at idle its your water pressure gauge hose

I think the speedo too. But for some reason I am thinking water pressure gauge. Not a expert by any means but that rang a bell.

Is this a Lund and you bought it from Pharo Marine ? When rigging my boat they forgot to hook up the water pick up to the speedo Wink
