Take a GOOD look at your raw water pump, as there is a 'weep hole' in the housing portion of the shaft .... and it will drip out into the boat when the seal on the shaft wears out needs replacing.

Also examine the exhaust manifold and engine block casting ... as sometimes these can develop 'pin hole' leaks when the 'internals' become corroded. Such pin hole corrosion is accelerated in engines that are 'stored long term' with all the water drained out of them.
