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.

"then screw it on by hand pretty tight but not as tight as you could make it. "


After a similar oil spill my boatyard tells me that Yanmar now requires that filters be tightened mechanically...more than by hand.

Does the oil filter housing look at all distorted or swollen?
I am not familiar with Yanmar, but almost all engines have an oil pressure relief valve that is supposed to open & send extra oil back to the oil pan if too much pressure develops.
If this valve sticks it can cause the oil filter to swell up & distort & create a leak where he filter attaches to the block. If this is to occur, it probably will be on a cold start when the oil is thick.
Often the pressure relief valve is part of the oil pump, but it may be a separate valve on the engine, as I said, I am not familiar with Yanmar.
