wet exhaust diversion

Hello fellow I32 owners. Tried to tow a new dinghy recently for the first time. By the time I got where I was going (motoring) the dinghy was full of water. Black exhaust water. We have that reverse transom with the thru hull shooting water up and well behind us. Motoring into the wind, like I was, makes matters worst. So, other than getting 100 feet of tow line, has anyone modified their wet exhaust thru hull with an 90 degree exhaust elbow to divert the spray down to avoid soaking what is being towed? Suggestions please...

thanks,
Roger
