Does water accumulate in the bilge with the boat just sitting in the water or does it only happen under way?

Check all your hose claps to make sure they are tight.

Ok so no water if sitting at rest and engines off. Try running the engine while tied to the pier and see if water accumulates.

I'm not real familiar with the B2. I assume you will have a pitot tube on the transom. Check the connection of the hose that passes through the transom. It may be brittle. The pitot tube works by forcing water up in to the gauge at the helm. If compromised the hose will leak along the way.

Also as suggested earlier run the boat in the slip for a while and see if the amount of water in the bilge increases, that would indicate a cooling system leak. With twins do this only running one engine at a time to isolate a cooling system leak.

The pitot on the Bravo is built into the forward edge of the drive just like it is on the Alpha Gen 2

Got it . I'm not familiar with the 2.

Where does the speedo tube penetrate the transom?

The air hose comes off the top of the lower unit just in front of the shift shoe and penetrates a hole in the transom assembly near the gear lube line.
