Home made exhaust riser - mixing elbow

Hi all, I am about to replace the riser/mixing elbow on my Yanmar 3gm30 and I found this chap who built his own. It looks like a logical and cheap solution! Has anyone out there created one of these?? Let me know please what you all think. I am not trying to simply be cheap, just looking for options to this seemingly common problem.

I'm doing the same project using the same web site for reference. Going to get started as soon as my new exhaust flange arrives. Planning a basically identical setup, maybe just a little more rise.

Re: Home made exhaust riser - mixing elbow

The Universal 5411 on my previous boat came with an exhaust loop made out of standard pipe fittings. When it came time for replacement, a trip to Home Depot resulted in all the black iron pieces (elbows, nipples, tee, etc) needed. Total cost about $30.

I replaced the U-type exhaust elbow on my current Yanmar 3GM30F this spring. Cost from the local dealer was about $150. Not terrible. If that's what's on your engine, that's how I would go.
