    Oil in hull

    Hi people........this is my first post and im in need of desperate help!!!!!
    Just been out on my rxtx260rs , iv not had it long and only done about 5 hours , its a 2010 model.
    I was just flushing her out and washing her down when i lifted the seat and noticed loads of oil around the fuel tank....the ski was not running at this time.
    Iv checked the dipstick and its showing no oil, the filter seems ok and i cant see how the oil would get to the front of the engine from there anyway........i just cant understand where its coming from..
    Any help would be great as im well gutted here....

    PTO seal, doesn't leak at rest or on the hose, but pours out while running.
    If you are still running the original stock drive shaft, change it out for the 2011 and newer c clip style. The original 2010's were notorious about PTO seal leaks, shaft failures, and spline failures.
