Although this looks like the culprit I have a bore scope on order and will look at the muffler.

I gave this some thought while driving home. The leak only occurs when the motor is running. The leak appears to be coming from above the stern shaft. The water heater fresh water supply was disconnected yet the leaks appears to be clear and not green antifreeze. Antifreeze levels in the engine were normal.

Looks like I will pull the exhaust next since I am leaning that way. Will not be able to run the engine till mid April due to temperature and no fresh water to attach. It will be good practice and piece of mind.
