There really are only 2 options here. It is either leaking around the hull through because the hole is too big, or the sealant has failed. Or it is leaking from the threads between the shut off valve and through hull. I would first unscrew the shut off valve (with boat out of the water :rofl: ), and then put some sort of sealant on the shut off valve and screw it back in tight. Other wise, you need to remove the through hull and put a layer of 3M 5200 around it and put it back. The 5200 turns to concrete, so don't plan on ever gettting it out again, some guys prefer the 4200 because it is slightly less concrete-like.

I would un-screw the pump, then roll a different 08 VLX in under the pump, then screw the pump back in.

Oh, with some 4200.
