Bubb - Is there anything damaging to the engine about having black ink in the water, other than to the environment?

Am I correct that it is necessary to correct the pitch, rather then just idle down and achieve the same speed, because then i am running too low an engine speed which will cause soot and black smoke?

The stuff in the water is black particulate - is that what unburnt diesel looks like?

Guess I better read up on what pitch is and how I adjust it!
