oil leak advice

Merry Cristmas Everybody!!!

After a long absence i am again baskin in the sun and ready to sail, but The Catalina on which i lived and sailed and love is in need of a overhaul. The owner left at the hands of some mexican cowboy who just left it there to detetriorate and now the engine hasnt been started and there is lots of oil in the bilge. I examined all i can see in the engine compartment and the only logical answer seems to be that the leak is somewhere under,i dont see oil sputters anywhere else. So can someoneoffer me advice what to do in order to find the leak and if its under how to get to it , i just dont have the budget to take the engine out , and if its under than what....oh i learned so much and had big plans for this boat and now....Thank you
Peace to the house
