Belle image de mon coin de pays.

When diesels are running at low temperature, they launch white smoke due the fuel ignited in it's combustion chamber needs high temperature in order to have best efficiency.

I'm no expert on Diesel or marine engines (plus, my dad is already in bed when I just phoned...), but I'd say that the air mixture is not quite right... This comment is open to suggestions from real Engineers..

Why the smoke is white and not black like usall diesel engines?

Seems not. She is powered by 4 Fairbanks Morse model 8-38D8-1/8 8 cylinder diesel engines.
