Bilge water leaking from around cockpit drain tube

I don't know if this is where all my bilge water is being made but that drip looks like at least a gallon an hour, if water is coming out then it must be able to get in right? I know that hole is at least half underwater, if not all the way with me and the motor back there.

I found this post viewtopic.php?f=2&t=6502&p=38960&hilit=cockpit+drain#p38960 of the user fixing the same leak by replacing the entire tube. I could do that but I'd have to buy the flange tool and I was wondering if I could just jam some sealant around the outside of the flange instead. Or should I just buy everything I need and replace the whole tube?

Also thank you to CentralCoastSailor for the detailed instructions on how to replace the tube.

Well I found all the stuff I need online, I'm just going to replace the tube. Water is probably getting into the transom through the the joint in the old 2 piece tube anyway, may as well do it right.
