That is the real question I have, about placement if moving it to the side of the hull.

Yes, my exhaust is still out the transom. It comes out about 4" above the static waterline, and of course it has a big loop to prevent backflooding should a wave impact the stern.

I'm not sure about moving the exhaust to the transom either. To keep the line from backfilling when heeled you'd want it high up on the quarter, but if you mount it high up then some wind angles will blow the exhaust back into the cockpit. Not pleasant. The exit point could also impact your ability to store stuff in your lazarette so it doesn't bump the exhaust hose or the water muffler.
