Probably your stuffing box. You may be able to tighten it to prevent the leaking or you may have to repack it. Only way to tell is to crawl in there and check it.

I know, I know... it really sounded funnier before I pushed the "send" button. (You know, sail IN the boat, sail ON the water. Anyway, I promise not to quit my day job.
