2015 evinrude 150h.o.

Backed up new boat in garage and put trim down then noticed oil coming out of motor around prop.dealer said it's normal because the motor is dumping extra oil for breakin and he just ran it at shop.does this sound right?

When an E-TEC is new, extra oil is added automatically by the engine computer at times. Every time the motor is started, some extra oil is added to eliminate any air bubbles.

 

It sounds like your dealer is correct, that it is a temporary thing, assuming that the oil residue is black or dark colored.  If it looks pale or amber color, that is a different story.
