I also seem to get a lot of steamy exhaust from the point shown on the picture below - what is this outlet as I thought all the exhaust exited though the prop!!??
How hot is very hot? Can you hold your hand on it?
The exhaust bypasses the leg at the point you show the gas escaping so that it doesn't have excessive back pressure at low speeds-that's fine.
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?
