Hi dean. Cruising = fixing boats in exotic locations is my second favourite quote. You'll know the other one. Wouldn't worry about losing your puff of smoke. A diesel engine (as many on this forum say) needs to work. 1500 rpm is thoroughly unkind to it. The drip of oil. Engine oil? Are you sure it's coming from the bell housing. Some stray oil can come from the turbo and finish up in unusual locations. With a young engine like yours a main bearing crankshaft seal is unlikely to have failed.
