    Does your oil smell like fuel?

    i had the same problem with my 460 in my sanger when i first got the boat last year. and im pretty sure it was caused by excessive crank pressure from blowby. the motor turned out to be pretty worn out when i pulled it this winter to rebuild it. now it is no longer a problem with the fresh rebuild. not sure if this is what your problem is but it was in my case. good luck

    A straight sparkplug boot works well for that but this works better

    I have a breather on the front and the pcv on the back. I leave my dip off with a black rubber vent block off on the sleeve. Just keep your dip in the boat somewhere to check oil every now and then.
