Omc Saildrive leaking water and oil from intermediate housing

I have an OMC sail drive. I was having a trickle leaking from the engine from the front of the engine near the water inlet valve. I took the motor out and replaced the seal and water pump. I noticed on the intermediate housing plate a small opening at the apex of the triangular shaped area where the gasket would lie on. it looked to be machined that way. but I didn't see it on the exploded view of the parts diagram. I put the motor back together and ran it and oil and water bubbled out of this area. Is this my water pump leaking into the gear oil and coming out form this area? I am also getting water into the bottom cylinder now. Help
