Oil in bilge, solved

There as a thread earlier, can't find it now, that mentioned a couple of places oil can leak into the bilge. Now this is just oil. No antifreeze or water. I was having pure oil. One place was a crack at the bottom of the dip stick, I had checked mine and it seemed fine. Another was the oil filter. That got me thinking that it seemed txt my problem all started around the time I last changed the oil and filter, December this past year. Figured I might as well change it again, it can never hurt. We do little motoring so it doesn't really need changed.

Change oil and filter this past week and ran the engine over the weekend at full throttle, no leak! So, thank you to whom ever posted that bit of advice.
