    I have noticed an issue that is concerning to me . When taking the boat rear drain plug out I am noticing some oil in the drain water. Took it to a dealer for inspection, they say they can't find a leak. Yesterday I had oil in drain water again. Anyone know anything that would cause this?
    Thanks in advance.

    Even a small spill in the hull will be quite noticeable in the bilge water. Have you recently changed the oil? If it's actually a leak and not noticeable, you'll just have to keep an eye on all of the fluid levels to figure it out. Any of the fluids will look the same in the water (oil, tranny, v-drive, hydrolic)

    Won't be this. It's electric on a 2012.

    I had the same issue on my 08 LSV. It gradually got worse and I found my oil pan was rusting by the drain plug and this is a common problem.

    Took it out again today, trailered boat , pulled rear drain plug and still oil. Seemed to not be as much. Found red on wakeplate. Looks like tranny oil. See no leaks around tranny, will continue to keep an eye out and will also check out that oil pan.
