Water in the cone fixed
I put on a new cone (not sure it was the cone though). Cleaned out all the old grease from inside the pump making sure to clean off the o-rings and then filled up the cone with grease. Came back from lake, no water....
I think it was because of the grease that was in and around the o-ring letting water slip by the cone.

check it again next time you go out. if it is still leaking, you need to replace seals in the pump. Now you got me wanting to check my cone, i can't remember if I've ever checked it... cross fingers.

and those of you with billet cones on your impellers... make sure your o-ring is in place inside the cone. Been seeing a few lately where the o-ring is missing and people are filling their cones with water by overlooking this.
if that o-ring is missing, think about the water velocity and pressure blasting thru the impeller cone past the driveshaft and dead-ending against the pump housing seals.
