Red face Newport 28 MKII Exhaust.

High,

I am new to the group. I bought my newport about 3 months ago and I have been doing the maintenance it needed.

I had a diesel mechanic look at the boat (which has a Universal 5411) and he said that the exhaust is not using a lift canister. Currently it has an elbow from the exhaustflange which rises above the engine, and at the end it uses an exhaust hose to an inline muffler. The Muffler is then connected to the hull outlet via a hose and another elbow rising as high as possible. The total height from the outlet to the top of the transom space (engine cavity) is about 2 to 2.5 feet. (this is not enough to install a vertical cannister with hose rising (as specified) 3' above the outlet.

My question is: what kind of exhaust did the N28 came with originally?
has anyone intalled a vertical canister?

thanks.
