Leaking gear oil and looking for a resolution or mechanic

My wife and I enjoy fishing for stripers on Texoma aside from bass fishing! However, the boat we currently own has a problem. I have an older Stingray bowrider and it’s leaking gear oil. Everytime I put oil in the reservoir, I lose most of it overnight. I can run it but I have to keep an eye on the oil level. I am not sure if it’s coming from the top or the bottom and it’s not coming from the prop or lower unit. It is a 4.3 Mercruiser sterndrive. Any help would be appreciated or a contact to a reliable trustworthy shop or mobile mechanic. Also, let me know if I can’t post this in the discussion thread. Thank you!

Hi John, thank you for the info. I will check them out. I had an appointment with a mobile mechanic Travis Mosley but he didn’t show up. Wonder if he’s any good. I haven’t had good luck with mobile mechanics.

Ok now I have an appointment on the 4th or 5th of August with a Daniel Derbery at his shop at Flowing Wells Marina, Pottsboro. I don’t know much on this man or shop and I hope he is trustworthy and reliable. Anyone can chime in or message me if you think or don’t think he’s reputable. Thank you!
