sorry for the miscommunication. the water in the bilge is from another issue i'm still trying to track down. i think it's coming down the mast during a hard rain. i'm more concerned with the black being added to the bilge water. i didn't know if the spinning prop, with no engine running, could cause oil/transmission leakage around the shaft where it enters the motor or maybe i have an oil leak and it's just a coincidence that this happened at the same time.
