Sounds like you might have a leak?

It is a good thing that it works "even when it is off."  This is a safety feature...it's doing its job and alerting you to a pretty good leak.  Get it on the water and find out where the water is coming in.  I'll shoot you a PM for a guide to assist in finding your water leak(s).

Check your prop shaft packing gland.....

It should drip drops, not gush....

Yeah this has happened to me twice. First time was shaft packing, second was a crack in my hull. I’d suggest starting to find the leak. Both times I was able to hear the water which helped lead me to the source, so listening can be just as helpful as looking too.
