Diesel exhaust- water?

New (to me) boat with Universal M18 diesel. Learned to start it yesterday, but have a question
Enigine holds at 175 degree after 20 min running. But no water escapes through the exhaust. Boat has a hot water tank with engine heat and also a Vetus water lift muffler.
The question: Is this OK? Why no water in the exhaust? Does the water tank need to heat up first before water flows through the exhaust? Or should I check the impeller?
So many questions All so new to me
Thank you
