The yellow thingie looks like a transmission dipstick, thats what makes me think the hose is vertical.

Why not make replacing that piece of hose an annual PM item?
Wouldn't you feel silly if you had to be towed home by a customer?
To the OP,
You have problems with your exhaust system because it is not properly installed. The pic you show, if shot from above, shows that the mixing elbow is oriented straight up, the worst possible scenario for a wet exhaust exit.
Mean old Mr. Gravity is dumping raw water back into the turbo and beyond every time you shut the engine off.
I suspect the "shower head" at the elbow is plugged up, thus the burnt hose without overheating.
I have replaced the hose several times a season in past years...the point was not to explain our operational schedule, maintenance program that I don't control or ready status...just that burning the hose isn't uncommon and really not that big of a deal on some boats.

Understand your situation, that's why I work for myself!
I spend most of my boating time in the DEEP blue, no seatow, no anybody to yell for, unless its the EPIRB, wouldn't want to go there...

Again.... my point was was not about proper maintenance....it was that your burnt exhaust hose is usually right near the elbo, not the entire run and it probably won't sink you unless ....

......it falls off at the transom end or you don't notice your boat becoming sluggish from the water being pumped into the bilge or the most unbelievable....you dont notice the exhaust smell in the boat..

Just trying to let people know not every little issue on a boat is a lie and death problem unless you really don't pay attention while cruising.
