It's almost time to end my 05 XStar's winter hibernation in underground storage cave so I need to refocus on fixing the oil leak. One day after winterizing boat last fall, I noticed oil dripping onto my driveway from bilge drain that's located mid-keel. My winterization checklist didn't involve changing/adding oil to tranny or engine......

I traced the oil back towards the tranny. I removed the middle cushion from rear bench seat to expose the transmission area and took this pic. The green circle identifies the "bolt" that appeared to be leaking oil.

Here's a close up of leak....

Could this have occurred because the boat wasn't level while running engine during winterization?
