If that rudder wasn't angled like that, it would be into the prop. It's either the angle of the picture making it look different or just differences between boat models.
The prop and the strut looked discolored, but not like paint - more like when you leave an aluminum can in a cooler full of water too long, the bottom gets kind of black/grey discolored.
