Hi, welcome to FixYa.
By "motor" are you perhaps talking aboout the water pump? it's mounted in the right front of the underside. The "prop" is the coolin fan for the pump motor. On a model GWL11 the part number is a 420324P. it comes as a complete unit. You need to change that pump as soon as possible if it is the source of the leak. If you let that go too long it can actually blow out the machine's main control board.
You can get a replacement here:

My older Evenrude 30 elo 689 L 418232, How do I winterize motor?

The main concerns are:
1. Draining and/or running all the fuel out
2. Fogging the engine with protective oil (fogging oil is available)
3. Remove the prop. The splice could use some lube and the number 1 cause of oil leaks is fishing line wrapped around the prop shaft. You don't fish? others do.
4. Hang the motor vertical (normal running position) should drain all the water out.

I believe you got fishing !one wrapped between prop and seal. Remove prop and inspect for line and leak around seal. If not, than the seal under water pump plate is leaking your gear oil.

AM14C slight leak at the bottom of the water deposit tank,

I love these machines. Keep it and fix the leak.

If you have a leak. You have to find out where it is coming from. Dripping water from the bottom of tank can be coming from a number of different places and at different times thru out the cycle. The rinse cycle or wash cycle or all the time.

The first place to check is the pump. It will leak during the wash cycle. Especially from the top gasket. This one commonly goes out.

The pump motor shaft seal will leak all the time but will drip from motor, not the tank area. You want to fix this before it ruins your motor bearings or motor.

But since you have a corner machine, the first thing to check is the rear door panel. This is were your door would be if you had a straight thru machine instead of a corner machine. It has teflon guides just like your actual doors and they do leak at times or all the time if the guides are
not sealing. IF food particles accumilate at the bottom of that panel it blocks the water from running back into machine and instead, onto your floor from the bottom of tank areas. This is anther common leak.
The teflon guides should be replaced if they have cracks in them or are brittle and flaking apart. Sometimes they slide down and can be push back up from inside the machine. In either case, you will need to clean all the crud from that back panel edge. Usually thats all I do to fix that leak is just clean it up and push those guides out to outside edge with the tip of my screwdriver to tighten the seal between them and the channel.

Hope that helps!

Motor is very noisy

Noisy motor indicates bearings on the shaft are going bad. This happens when you have a shaft seal leak and the leaking water is getting to the bearings. Sounds like you need to replace shaft seal and set of shaft bearings. Easy fix is to replace the motor only for about $150.00 for motor replacement. Around $40.00 for seal and bearings and some of your time.

Antifreeze squirting out and getting flung all over engine compartment by fan. Overflow tank was dry ,filled it up, drove 10 miles home and was dry again

You will probably need to take it to a shop if you can not identify the leak yourself. They will pressure test the cooling system and identify where the antifreeze is leaking from. I could guess that it is the radiator or the water-pump but you will need to find out. Good luck.

Water leak around transmission

you will need a new tub seal kit part number 12002223. however these seals are very time consuming to change and most(90%) of the time will only temporaraly fix the problem. the seals are machine pressed in at the factory so changing the seal in the home doesn't hold up very long

We have boat that came with trolling motor, boat not used in 5 years what should we do to service the motor/minn kota 40at before we put in water we hooked to battery it spun and quit?? not sure what to...

My guess is the motor has leaked water into the lower motor assy (behind the prop). and needs to be cleaned up and the brushes replaced.
here's a schematic:
Edge 40
You can try this to check for water leakage:-
1) disconnect from power supply
2) remove the prop
3) you will see 2 bolt heads behind where the prop was. Remove ONLY ONE of them for now.
4) if you see the bolt (it's about 8" long) is covered in what looks to be blask, oily/watery or rusty condition then you know that you'll need to overhaul it.
5) if it IS the motor assy, remove the other bolt and disassemble everything noting their location.
6) I would recommend replacing the brushes Part# 188-052 and the seal kit 2883460.

Leaking coolant

Highly unlikely that is the case more likely it is the radiator leaking onto the fan. Also check the upper hose to make sure that it doesnt have a pin hole in it. Good luck and dont forget to rate.

No visable leaking, always smell coolant when motor is hot, outside of the 2003, 3.3liter grand caravan. Gauge will read half way after 3mins on a cold start, takes about 8mins for any heat to come from...

If you smell coolant then there is a small leak, it is most likely the water pump shaft seal, look for stains, coolant leaves a white powder when it dries, look on the underside of the hood for any coolant stains from it been flung there by the spinning water pump. Also have a radiator pressure test run, good insurance aginst an engine overheat if leak worsens, engines are very expensive to repair if overheated badly.
