    My STX-12F started leaking oil from an cracked oil cooler when the ski had 50 hours on it. It was replaced by the dealer under warranty. I would start there.

    Removing engine is a lot easier than putting it back.
    if you don't find any obvious culprit for the leak, you may have a cracked oil pan. A loosened or extra bolt/nut that you might have dropped got jammed between the oil pan and the hull floor and punched a hole in the oil pan. There is not much space and I've seen it happening on 12F and 15F.
