Crank case breather on a Mermaid

Hello I'm new to the forum and already asking for help!

How much oil vapour should come out of the crankcase breather before before I should worry about doing somthing to the engine?
At present the engine only breathes when it is hot and not a lot, but how much is too much? I am using sinth oil and cannot decide if this is a good idea or waste of money and contributing to the problem. Let me know your thoughts.

At the end of the day the lump is a Ford cargo engine, with marinisation. therefore any diesel engineer could give you an informed opinion, if you don't find the answer here
