Default Steam from Exhaust...

I have a '94 5.7 L Mercruise in my boat. Recently while running on the hose
when flushing i noticed steam coming from the exhaust on the prop and the
exhaust on the bottom of the outdrive. It wasn't a tremendous amount but
never noticed it before. Any basic suggestions to troubleshoot ?

THanks!

No troubleshooting necessary. Normal operation.

That's normal. The cooling water is dumped into the exhaust at the end of
the riser.
