Mixing elbow, high-rise

I'm having a high-rise mixing elbow made for my Yanmar 4JH3E. I don't want any chance of standing water in the exhaust hose getting tossed back into the exhaust manifold, while the boat is heeled. What's the best material for this? I'm told that stainless doesn't do well in this oxygen depleted environment. Galvanized better? Maybe Schedule 80? Screwed versus welded? Etc.
Thanks

Why not just use one of the high-rise elbows that Yanmar supplies? Not positive that they have one for the 4JH3E, but I would guess they do.

I'm in a remote location, they might be hard to find. Black steel pipe is also sometimes mentioned for this app.

The exhaust loop on the Universal 5411 on my previous boat was fashioned from standard black iron elbows, nipples, and a tee. Easy and cheap to replace.
