    You can ride it with the seat off, so you can watch the engine compartment and perhaps see where the water is coming in form.

    I tried idling it with seat off and watching but not actually riding it, I will give that a shot. Really hoping the thru hull carrier didn't come up somehow I put an enormous amount of 5200 on/under it

    Yes you should of used silicone on the back of that holder...

    You will have to ride it to see the leak

    Loosen the driveshaft holder, slide it forward and clean both surfaces. Apply sealant (NOT 5200!) and snug the screws. Wait for the sealant to dry, then tighten the screws.

    So found the main source of my leak. I had forgotten to tighten one of the hose clamps on the thru hull carrier rubber tube. I also will be applying silicon to the back of the driveshaft holder after cleaning both surfaces in the future but even without the silicon after fixing the hose clamp all I had was a little dribble out of the drain holes.
