Westerbeke 12B Leaking water

When I started my boat this spring, something sounded off, so I took a look and my Westerbeke 12B is expelling water in between the exhaust manifold and the exhaust elbow (where the water is introduced to the system. I'm guessing that it's a bad seal on the exhaust elbow? Do I need to replace the just the seal or the entire exhaust elbow? Is this a common problem?

Re: Westerbeke 12B Leaking water

Can't tell without at least removing the elbow. But that said, exhaust elbows do generally have limited lifetimes, although there are some that do last longer than others. I don't have any recommendations for source, but there are many exhaust elbow threads here that do.

In addition, if the leak did a job on the engine compartment, it'll be a good idea to thoroughly clean and rinse everything to get rid of the salt (assuming you are in salt water) to minimize corrosion and future problems.
