When last I was messing with the exhaust system, I had made the fiberglass outlets that exit the hull near the aft bulkhead in the engine room. Since those will fill up two big holes near the waterline, I need to get them installed and the exhaust systems assembled so we can splash later this year.
After installing the outlet on other side, that’s two more holes on the exterior that are filled. But to finish up the exhaust system I need to replace the original Cummins exhaust elbows with something better. The original elbows are listed on the For Sale page for Refit Parts, Tools, Supplies & Leftovers, along with a bunch of other stuff. Two years ago, I checked with several marine exhaust manufacturers about having custom dry exhausts made, with the wet showerhead pointing toward my waterlift mufflers. The estimates that came back were quite high–they averaged $5300 for both sides. So I held off on ordering a set until they were absolutely necessary. Well…we’ve reached that point now.
