Regardless of how you build this new system,Do you think a CO alarm would be a good addition? All the old fish boats had keel coolers and hot dry exhausts made of common black iron pipe and NPT fittings wrapped in asbestos rope and water glass .Apart from the occasional fire and death from CO poisoning ,worked pretty well. Custom made fiber glass blankets are available and SS pipe/ fittings are cheap at the scrap yard .I once made a complete water jacketed system in SS with bolted flanges and connecting joining hoses ( for a customer). For what it's worth,Thane has a wet exhaust .
