Exhausting a diesel generator

Hello. I wonder if anyone has ever ran an exhaust system from the muffler of a portable generator through the hull to make it semi fixed.

I have a portable diesel generator that works well and a great spot where the boat manufacturer mounts the factor genset. I can ventilate it well but have to work out how to run the engine exhaust.

The exhaust is currently a 35mm small pipe dry system.

I was thinking of extending the pipe and then clamping exhaust hose to it. Maybe even making a wet system by pumping water into it. Although if I could keep it dry it would be better.

Anyone done something like this?

Thanks

Dean

Be careful about exhaust temperature on a dry system. You could melt the gel coat.

Thanks I will test in on land before installing anything. I have also been looking for diy instructions for a wet exhaust but not found much.

I read with interest someone mention just pumping water through a sleeve. Sounded like a good idea to keep water well away from entering the genset.
