Re: Oil in exhaust?
Did you see oil on the water? If not, then you probably aren't exhausting oil.
Other than that, black smoke can mean barnicles on the prop. (At haul, out, I had 6 feet of line wrapped around the prop.)
I suggest you buy a mask, fins and a snorkle (and wetsuit). Like owning a Mast Climber, it pays for itself quickly.
Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!
