how do you know there is no water ? Devil is in the details. Changed oil colour/bubbles CF story is trap for young players. You need to check at the bottom of saildrive

if you remove it. Add breather thing !
I have fixed my SD 50 and now both perfect for 600 hours which is more than 1/2 of their lives (1100 hrs ~ 7.5 years ~ 30,000nm). My wife learned how to move into /out of gears and that's really it.
And sail more.
