Greetings,
Mr. Poker. "...is also prohibited by P-1". ABYC standards are NOT laws! They are what the boating industry in North America have agreed are probably good ideas to be applied to new builds.
AYBC P-1 1.7.2 states "An indicator shall be provided that is effective at all helm positions to indicate loss of exhaust system cooling water supply. This indicator shall be independent of the engine block temperature indicator(s)."
How many used boats have a loss of coolant water indicator? How many "giant red flags" has this raised on any of YOUR surveys?
I think the point has been made that shared exhausts are common while not, as Mr. RickB pointed out, necessarily a good idea.
