mysterious leak

Salinity cannot be used to help identify the source of the water because the boat is in a lake. I am, however, pretty sure that the bilge directly beneath the engine fills first.
But again, whether this is from the stuffing box or from, say, a leaking cockpit engine access hatch, is difficult to determine. Has anyone had a leaky engine access hatch?
