Oil Spill

Got a question for anyone in the affected area. What are the affects(damage) on boats in the water other than a oily scum line..?

If you've got an inboard I can think of a few things - the strainer might immediately clog. If it was oily and the strainer didn't stop it it would congeal from the pump agitation and make the heat exchanger useless.

We had a bunker oil spill here in the San Francisco Bay a few years ago (Costco Busan) and I still see boats with blobs of hardened oil at the waterline. The stuff is almost impossible to get off. Don't know if raw crude oil would do the same thing though.
