Default Engine oil turned green

Unsure if I have water or a lot of gas in my oil. Oil looks like green in color and smells like gas. I have an oil catch can and it seems creamy oil was coming out of the top of breather instead of going in catch can, and white on bottom of oil cap. Checked all plugs looks to be burning good and runs good.

Do you add Sta-bil to your gas? It will give your oil a green tint , You might want to shorten your oil change time if it smells like gas. My 502 used to get green oil around 30 hours.

Has been sitting for a long time, gas has been there for two years, Iím thinking Iím just gonna pull it and freshen it up just to be safe. Have never pulled a motor with a transmission still pull the drive off or how do you go about doing it . Transmission is half in the extension box

You can leave the transmission in the boat just unbolt the motor from the bell housing.
