I'm glad to hear the boat and motor are looking good, running good and you are a happy boatman. Don't worry about oil coming out of that drain hole in the lower unit. That is normal and a good sign that the hole is open and working like it should. That oil is from unburned oil and water draining out of the exhaust housing. I hope to meet you at one of our get together's sometime in the near future.

Neil,
Glad to see it finally on the water. Hope you enjoy it for many years to come.
Don't fret the goo coming out of the motor, that's the way it works.
Put a piece of cardboard under the lower unit and you can see if it's leaking. A couple drops a day is no big deal. You can reseal it this winter.

Congrats on the test run. Sorry I couldn't make it today but it looks like you had a good time. The boat looks great in the water. I will need to get out there with you soon and get some pictures of the boat under power.
Way to go getting it wet.
Chris
