If there is no way that drive fluid from an Alpha enters the engine compartment of the boat (no reservoir); then how does drive fluid come out of the bilge plug hole? Did it come from there or just appear to?

no it came from there , stuck my finger in the hole and could feel it and saw it drip from there into the small puddle

after the last time I used it, it sat at work for like three days and not a drop then I put it in storage (outside) and it sat there for about 8 days with the bow up. You would think it would have just leaked out there? it was almost a 100 degrees for 5 of those days if that had and thing to do with it?

weird

So, it appears as though you are leaking fluid into the bellows, and its draining down the bellows in through the transom assembly, down the inner face of transom, and out the bilge hole. It does need to be addressed. Once you are running and heat that drive oil up and you trim the drive out to run, you may push too much of your fluid into the bellows and into the bilge, and that will break the drive due to lack of lube.... worse case scenario.
