If you use one of the Vetus plastic mufflers, they will melt if you lose your water cooling. No way to repair it. If you use a Vernay fiberglass muffler, the hose will burn out first, which is easy to repair.
I usually put on a piece of 12" long 2" ID hose with wire in it from the high rise elbow into the front end of the Vernay horizontal waterlift muffler. Coming out of the muffler I use 1-7/8" ID hose, rise up to deck level, then back down to the hull exhaust outlet.
Works great. Check out page F-08 of my Westsail Service Manual.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
