You can see how the fiberglass on the bulkhead is kind of swollen too. Looks like this may have been an ongoing problem I just never noticed it before. It's kind of hidden underneath the step that I use to get down into the engine room. When my stuffing box plugged or whatever happened to it to cause it to quit dripping, got so hot that it sort of melted the inside of that rubber hose causing it to balloon like it did.
If you can't repair it maybe it shouldn't be on the boat
