You are right! The engine on my Yankee 30 is midships, so the exhaust water has to travel over half the length of the boat, to exit. After the water in the exhaust line has drained by the heeling of the boat, it takes about 2 minutes to get to the Stearn. When you've just rebuilt the water pump and are sensitive to cooling issues, that seems like an eternity! All is well, thanks for the insight!
