Oil smell 2010 LY6

i did do a search,but i could use some help with this one.

I,ve had a lot of boats and been in a lot of MC - Malibu,s - supra,s with indmar engines.

My own boat has a anoying oil smell since bought new last year.
I did ask the mechanic from our dealer about it and he said he noticed too with some of the other LY6 engines.

Anyways,...i am Mechanically Inclined but i just can not find where the smell is comming from.
Engine is not burning oil
no leaks
checked crankcase vent
checked oil cooler for leaks

seems like it is comming from the right side of the engine...
a fresh not burnt hot oil smell wich you can smell thru out the boat especially when the heater is on.

any tips where to go from here?

How did you fix it? Just a fitting?

i,m on the 3th oil filter and it,s still leaking,...can not see anything wrong with the remote oil filter housing.
although my 2010 LY6 has a double oil cooler,the filter is so hot,. i,ll measure it next time.
