Atomic 4 exhaust

My engine''s exhaust system has developed a leak aft of the engine. The current system appears to be a 3''copper pipe from the manifold to an industrial steam fitting 4 bolt flange. Aft of the flange a galvanized pipe is bent up slightly to clear the hull. In the aft lazarette a couple of elbows form a loop, and out she goes.The leak is in the galvanized pipe. (Coolant is fed in at the exiting loop so there is only exhaust leaking.)
Is the use of high temp exhaust hose appropriate from the flange aft. (Easier to bend than 10'' of pipe)
