Help! 2003 Honda Aquatrax Smoking

So I’ve noticed white smoke from the tail when idling. When I rev it more smoke appears. It runs fine and the oil level is good with new Honda oil. Not sure what’s causing this. Link to the video below.

That looks like steam to me. does it do it in the water or just when hooked to a hose?

Looks like steam. White or white/blue smoke will smell like burning oil. Even if it is only steam, you shouldn't be getting it while on the hose. That indicates something is getting hot enough to evaporate water, or it was just extremely cold outside.

Restriction in the exhaust cooling jacket. Check all the hoses for restrictions, if they are clear pull the exhaust elbow from the manifold, there is a small hole in the bottom, make sure it is clear. That's what caused mine to overheat. Also check the elbow, and waterbox, make sure they didn't melt like mine did.
