    PTO seal at driveshaft most likely. Other areas to check are the PTO gasket, all of the plugs at the bottom of the PTO cover and the wire grommets for stator and crank position sensor on the top of the PTO cover.

    front of the ski could be oil pump seal or plug, oil filler tube or maybe even the big balance shaft plug behind the front engine mount. Pull of the plastic engine covers and look around. Oil from the dipstick is also a possibility. You could also check the oil pressure switch, crank lock plug and timing chain tensioner, although they are more towards the back of the engine and under the intake manifold.

    Do you see oily residue anywhere specific or just milky oil in the hull? Could that be left over from the work you just did?

    The easy way for me is clean the hull as best as possible and tape napkins under it oil could come from back and roll off block and travel etc
