Customer Question

I have a sailboat with a 16 horse diesel engine. It has been fine for years. This year the engine was winterized and the oil changed. I am selling the boat and the surveyor said the engine oil was overfull. The mechanic who did the job said no way it is fine. I ran the boat for 3 hours and oil came out the breather hose into the air filter. Is this evidence that it was overfull?
