Underwater Exhaust

In following seas it''s not unusual for the exhaust on my C270 to be covered for various periods, and perhaps the others momentarily, but never for long. Catalina Direct has a flapper valve available for exhaust outlet but installation is difficult. Not really sure if it would be required except in extreme conditions with water lift exhaust. I''ve never motored anywhere near that speed, the outlet for manual pump is pretty high the stern must have been down quite a bit if it was always underwater.
