Exhaust Leak Question...

I have an Albin AD21 Diesel engine in my Coronado 35. When we took her out on her maiden voyage. I accidently forgot to open the fresh water intake, so needless to say the engine got up to 210 degrees quickly. This caused a multitude of issues. The fresh water impeller had to be replaced and the transmission needed to worked on. The issue I am having now is that we have a small exhaust leak. I have changed the exhaust outlet gasket and I still have a small leak. It is less than before, but still there. Is there any methods to check for an exhaust leak? I was thinking using the stuff you check natural gas lines, but is there anything else?

Thanks in advance..
