Last year on re-launching our Ocean 37 after a few months on the hard at Mayflower Marina in Plymouth, I started the starboard engine (Perkins HT 6-354) only to have it very quickly become extremely noisy and the saloon fill with exhaust smoke. Managing to get her across the marina to our summer pontoon berth, and with the aid of a mirror on a stick, I discovered that a large hole had appeared in a very badly corroded section of the starboard engine exhaust manifold, which even from a cursory glance appeared to be terminal.
