Hey Guys,

I may have missed this part. Why would black smoke be a sign of a fowled prop or hull?

So I had the boat hauled today and the hull didn't look too bad but there were clearly barnacles on the prop and prop shaft.

Otherwise the prop looked good and the zinc was still there (a little of it anyway).

But why the black smoke?
