Stainless or regular steel for exhaust nipple?
I have to replace the 1.5" nipple that connects the engine to the exhaust elbow (Westerbeke 58 engine). Does it make sense to use a stainless nipple rather than regular steel? There is a certain amount of heat here but the combination of heat, exhaust gases, and seawater must be very corrosive.
Finishing our major refit. Our trip to Newfoundland is off because it is too late. Hoping to go to the North Channel instead.
