theres the water pickup tube, the shift cable bellows, and the bellows.  the exhaust bellows wont let water into the boat, it'll just be loud at the gimbal. 

also inside if you have thru-prop exhaust there is a small seal where the Y pipe bolts up to the transom assembly.   

shift cable bellows

it probably leaks less because you're stretching the bellows and closing the hole up.  id check the main driveshaft bellows and the shift cable bellows.

What drive?

How high does the water need to be before you see the drip?

Most likely the bellows has a hole. Look inside each ring, sounds like your hole is on top of bellows if the leak slows when you raise the drive.

Yea thats what I think too. Im gunna talk to oc boat repair about it. Since it has new bellows on it and wasnt leaking before they took the motor and outdrive off the replace stringers.

Hopefully it will hold togethet for the rest of the summer. I have atleast two more trips. And Ill just do the transom this winter. Shouldnt orange county boat repair have noticed the transome rot since they just did the stringers a month ago

If you are going to do anything, I would recommend drilling some holes (inside the hull) and squirt some Boatlife "Git-Rot" in there to fill in where the wood rotted away.

Pretty good chance it will save the rest of your season anyway.

Not sure the foam would do a damn thing.
