Hot means hot then. If it was that hot, it had flames in it. Firebox.

That exhaustlooks a bit like it belongs on a small turbine.

Hydroplane racing props are quite small, they turn really fast though, like 10,000 rpm. 190mph boats like these have props not much bigger than that: The Boat

So its actually somewhat proportional to that little boat's size.

I'm guessing the "hot" item is dry exhaust, exhaust into the water would slow her down.

Yes, turbine engines are common on hydro racers.
