No way this is normal...Are you seeing blue/black smoke? If so...the engine needs attention. Are you losing oil to the bilge? If so...gaskets/seals need attention. ...Does a slick form around the boat when idling at the dock...if so you may be losing oil through the oil cooler/heat exchange.
In any event, this needs immediate attention from a competent diesel guy.
