Palmer P-60 Engine smokes

Hi all, I have an Islander 30 MKII with a Palmer P-60 Gas Engine. It runs great, idles smooth, doesn't overheat, good oil pressure, plugs look good, but it smokes pretty good,,,,,,doesn't smell like exhaust, water pump works well. Somewhat perflexed looking for any suggestions and possible fuel additives?
Thanks and Fair Winds
Rick

Re: Palmer P-60 Engine smokes

What color is the smoke? Usualy blue is oil burning, black is fuel and sometimes white is steam.
