1984 wellcraft 22 ft boat taking on water filling nose up?

I have a 22 foot wellcraft that when take it out on water the nose fills with water under cabin and then starts backing up in stowage boxes Not sure where water is coming in. I think it is coming off deck into anchor box and filling up from charging waves and going to fast. My son don't think so I don't see any cracks or obvious holes some scrapes but water set for 3 days in hull with out dripping or coming out. I had to elevate the front a quite a bit to get water to drain out. I think need to pull fuel tank and clean out underneath to allow water to get to rear of boat because water was that far back until I jacked it way up to get water to come out the drain. Anyone have ideas on this or am i on the right track new at this bigger boat stuff down here in florida.

Leaking?
by: Gerry

Hi, are you sure it is actually leaking?
I ask this because I had one of my boats facing nose down on the drive and rain water used to build up at the front, I didn't notice until planing when it would run towards the stern.
Sorry if it's a useless idea lol.
