Dinghy Motor - This Doesn't Look Good!

Where is this grease coming from? Looks like emulsified white grease is getting into the water jacket. It leaks out when I shut down the motor and the water empties. Anybody seen this before and know what causes it?

dont have the answer. Im thinking you have an oil leak and it is dripping and getting yucky with water then it looks like grease.
here is the link to your photos

Non-issue.

Just unburnt 2 stroke oil...

You may be able to cut it down by changing brands... may be an over-rich mixture, but nothing out of the ordinary.
