Most likely dirty prop
Sounds like you have a dirty prop or bottom. When the motor is under load, it works to move the boat. When prop/bottom is dirty, the motor must work harder to move the boat, which puts a strain on the motor more so than a clean prop/bottom. Hence, you see more smoke.
Your smoke is probably a mix of steam and unburnt fuel. When was the last time when to prop/bottom was cleaned?
If you liked my advice/response, give me some rep points. If you didn't......well what do you expect, it was free.
