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.
Heading back to Lake Ontario for this summer. Ainia is back in North America for the first time since 2010. Currently in Long Island Sound.
