looking for advice


I'm new to the forum and fairly new to sailing. I purchased an 1974 islander 30 last year and began my sailing journey. After the winter (sat on trailer) I put the boat back into the water and the yanmar 8hp diesel engine isn't cooperating. I did get it to start but does not run long, and blows what looks like oil from the exhaust. I did make sure all the water was drained before winter. Because of this, I was also wondering about the possibility of putting an outboard motor on her if the inboard is shot.
