CaptainForce Is you bilge pump effluent just an inch or two above the waterline? When your vessel rocks with waves or wake can you be taking in "sips" of water with each roll? Do you have an anti-siphon loop on the bilge effluent? I had this water source some years back and made a simple fix. 'take care and joy, Aythya crew

Stuffing box maybe?
