I agree, this is not something you want to have as a recurring problem!
I would look for a quality fiberglass muffler to replace the rubber unit.

As for the generator on the flybridge or swim step, wouldn't the exhaust be going the same place as a built in, onboard unit?
Overboard or overhead is normal in the industry, don't know of any better solution.
You never know so you guess your best and have several CO monitors and pray for a nice breeze.

Even built in units have produced CO that found its way through convoluted paths and reentered the boat to cause a fatality.

I still smell a rat in the OP's exhaust system.
Quality marine mufflers don't just split open at the seams during gentle use!

Do I understand correctly that this is a rubber muffler? I've only seen/heard of fiberglass wet exhaust mufflers. I've seen plenty of rubber boots and elbows, but never a muffler.

As others have said, between the risks of exhaust gas poisoning and boat flooding, I would just get a new muffler.
