On our vacation i discovered saltwater in the bilge everytime we where motoring. Apr. 1. liter pr. hour.
After investigating it turned out that the exchaust is rubbing against a screw under deck (the aft cleat fixing). This has produced a hole on top of the exhaust pipe. Will post picture later when i have it.
 
My dealer has promised to replace the exhaust pipe under warrenty.
 
Hope this will save you some time if you get a simmilar problem.

I had similar problem.

The exhaust pipe while motoring moved too much and broken her plastic blocks. So it forced on the external shower pipe and broke it.
I found all fresh wather of the tanks in the bilge

We had the same problem last year. Just a few hours after we left Greifswald.
