White Smoke in the Engine Exhaust

John and Sue Mackie, John William 37VT68, are cruising from Michigan to Florida.  Last week, in the C&D canal, John started to feel a severe engine vibration.  He said that when he opened the Tommy Door the engine appeared to be dancing on the mounts and there was a lot of white smoke in the exhaust.  Turns out the fuel injector pump had failed and the white smoke is a result of fuel being injected at the wrong time.
