Perkins 4108 massive oil leak

Hi, I have a massive oil leak beside the oil filter. I think that it is spraying out oil when it is 3k rpm(high rpm). It's spraying around 50cm to one direction. I bought the boat 3 months ago. I didn't have the problem before. The problem started to happen when I cleaned the air filter and then it got more power (max 3000rpm before 2.4rpm) and no more black smoke. I think that when it got more rpm it gets more oil pressure and starts to leak. I tidied up the oil hose but it did nothing. For me, it looks like it is missing one bolt. I think that I should block that hole with a bolt with a copper washer. Because in another site that hole is blocked.
In this video about 1,6k rpm no leak but I can see oil shine in the hole.
Any ideas? Thanks
