From my experience, no. Looks like the strut and prop have been painted ????

Something looks wrong with the angle of that rudder, it's pitched back it seems. Maybe it hit bottom? Also it's the small rudder, not the updated rudder.

I've never seen a black prop, it the strut black also?

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.

What size prop is that? Numbers should be stamped on it.

There is a rudder update for that boat (larger size rudder), and it will make it drive much better. I did it to my '03 Maristar 230 (same boat)
