Re: Elbow Replacement

If it is one with an exhaust riser and a nipple for the cooling water from the HX, then most folks make their own out of pipe and have a welder make the nipple. There is somewhere on the internet that I ran across a pre-made nipple that can easily screw into basic pipe.

Oh, here it is:

Sorry, the link appears to no longer work.

Try this:

I got it under parts, search for exhaust nipple.

For many Catalinas, I know not your boat, Catalina Direct makes pre-made riser assemblies.

It appears that you still have the flange on your riser. Make sure you keep that and assure it is in good shape. They're expensive to replace, like around $200.

You might even be able to save the insulation.

Here's what some of our guys did:
