You need to prevent any oil, diesel, or coolant in the pan under the engine from getting into the bilge sump. There can be a hole in the engine pan, but you should keep a plug in it. This will let you drain out any clear water.

There should be a water passage below the engine pan to permit any water coming in from the shaft stuffing box to pass directly into the bilge sump, and not go into the engine pan.
