The first thing I would do is radio a Pan Pan with my fix and the fact that I'm taking water - update to follow.

That way at least someone knows where I am and that I have a problem.

Then I'd set about the other stuff like where is it, what is it, how do I fix it, etc.

If the water is coming in that fast that you haven't time for a pan-call, make it a mayday and get ready to leave.
