That caught my eye as well -- particularly since the one on the left is capped off. My first thought was fresh water piping, but then remembered that this is rather deep in the bilge (duh!). The cropping is too close to see where the right one leads, or what's connected to the elbow.

sailingfool will become famous soon enough
Does the exhaust exit above the waterline and is there a siphon break on the top of the riser pipe (just out of the picture?). If yes to both questions, I would not worry about the exhaust setup. If the second fitting the engine fresh water intake. Not as robust as some but I wouldn't worry about it for around town use.
