Suggestions for Perkins Mechanic on ICW Near Charleston?

I'm on a Westsail 32, and my Perkins M50 has developed a leak in the oil system which occurs only when the engine is running, from a pipe that connects underneath the oil filter, approx 1 drop every 15 seconds. All the fittings seem tight. I think I need a mechanic to check this out. Does anyone have a recommendation or idea?

Just replaced that line last year. It's possible to do it yourself, but might require a hydraulic shop to make up a new hose.
