Surfesq is right, the first step is to taste it.
If it's fersh you know its coming from inside, do you have fridge/freezer or AC? that's probably where its coming from unless its from a shower or other leaky fawcet. trace your pipes. Good news unless you have a kickass watermaker running wild you won't sink.
If it is salt, it has to be a thruhull, and don't forget your engine is full of saltwater, and your stuffing box could be it as well. Be careful with this one but you can place powdered dye (non permanent) around any water connections or thru hulls and later see where there is a runoff line. Its a good way to spot slow leaks
