You need to remove the lower unit and inspect the exhaust housing, exhaust housing seals (upper &lower), inspect the water tube #27 for holes.
At 26 years old it is possible that the water tube may have developed a pinhole leak, also the upper and lower seals on the water tube grommet and exhaust housing could be worn or damaged.
