Little bit of oil on the spark plug

Hey guys,
went to fog the boat this weekend and pulled one of the plug and it had a light coating of motor oil on it. wondering if this is a problem... last time i ran the boat i never ran it up to temp...

WillyT .... not a chance .... it does not mean anything especially if you don't have any other symptoms. Not to worry my friend .... it also means we should have happy hour tomorrow!

Peace.

Where was the oil? I pulled one awhile ago and a bit of oil where the plug seats against the block.
