    Roger, I don't know if you've been following my problems with a poorly designed generator exhaust system on our Manatee ? I think the answer is to raise the exhaust hose height as it exits the muffler. Some comments mentioned installing a flapper on the exhaust, not very practical because like most generators the exhaust is a thru hull fitting.
    This got me to thinking about the exhaust on the Volvo TMD 31 A which originally had a s/s flapper long gone. Do you have a retro fit flapper usually black rubber hose clamped to the exhaust pipe ? A following sea could flood the engine as happened to my generator. I'm going to see if I can find a retro flapper to fit my exhaust outlet. How is your out fitting of your Manatee going ?
