Atomic 4 Exhaust

I recently took possession of a 1971 Ericson 27 with what I believe to be an original Atomic 4 gas engine. While working on the carb, fuel filter and fuel pump I managed to get the engine running, only to discover that my exhaust pipe was corroded to the point of exhaust not getting cleanly thru the muffler.
I have taken the exhaust manifold off of the engine (could not get the flange loose from the manifold. I have been informed that I can recreate the exhaust pipe with some black iron pipe and some couplings. My problem is that the muffler was what I think is called a "standpipe" muffler. I talked with someone at Moyer Marine that tells me I can put a different muffler in the boat.
Has anyone gone thru the process of replacing their exhaust system? What sort of muffler did you put in and where did you find it?
