Sounds like you have a freeze plug that is corroding out or otherwise failing. This might be plugging a pressurized oil passage in the block; it would be very bad if it failed while the engine was running. If you can take a picture and post it here it would help determine the issue. You might also want to call a marine parts distributor like TAD or Torreson marine (both have websites) and ask for some technical assistance.
