Bilge running a lot. Not coming from plugs. On a 21 malibu vlx. When I take boat out of the lake the water does not leak out. Thoughts on what to trouble shoot?

Raw water intake , sea strainer connections, water cooling hose connections around the motor/ manifold.

any and all ballast hose connections including the thru hull fittings, aerator pump housings and hoses

Is it actually pumping out water or just getting notification on screen?

pumping out water

1. sit boat in water with nothing running

if bilge doesn't come one and you can't see water.

2. turn boat on and check for water.

no water then move

3. drive and see if water is coming in. Shaft seal?
