Oil leak without engine running?? Any ideas?

Went down to check on the boat today, I just bought it in the fall so haven't ran it much. Previous owner told me he thought the leak was a valve cover. I changed oil before winterizing. This is the starboard 360 which he had rebuilt and has about 50 hours on it. I've got oil sitting in the bilge?? ...

Re: Help with bottom paint prep

Thanks for the pointers. Think I'll end up using stainless wire brushes on a cordless drill. Would like to sandblast but not sure how big of a mess that would make and I'd need a gas powered air compressor. Might be doable as long as I could contain the mess as it's on in Jack stand at the marina so...
