But here's another thought... Were you motor sailing prior to these incidents? I know that some Bukh diesels will pump their entire oil reservoir into the bilge if they are run at too great a heeling angle..... Given the time between leaks could there be a correlation there??

I doubt this is the problem, as the boat was at the dock the second time... Also, sounds like they hadn't even made it out of the marina the first time around.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
