Velvet Drive using too much fluid?

My new to me boat has a Volvo 60 HP turbodiesel with a Velvet Drive transmission. The transmission is using ~ 1 quart of Type III fluid every 8 hours of operation. From all inspections, it is not leaking. (positive) thoughts?

Something is leaking. I would bet the transmission cooler too if it isn't in the bilge.

Take the cooler to a radiator shop and have them pressure test it for you.

It sure as hell ain't being consumed.
