4 inch tip. My main issue is that my snail exit does mot line up with exhaust tip. I need a very flexible exhaust hose. But not sure if there is anything that flexes that much.

They make spacers http://www.hardin-marine.com/c-1318-manifold-spacers.aspx

But I think you might need a bit more than 3/4".  ;D

Eddie Marine sales a very pliable exhaust hose for a pretty penny.

If it was a small tip, I was going to suggest going to a larger tip and cutting the snails to use the 3 1/2" outlet. Then you could cheat the tips in the direction you needed.

Does the tip on the inside of the transom take 3 1/2" hose or 4"? If it takes 4", you'll have to make an adapter on one end, and could angle it to kill two birds with one stone.

I am planning to use the larger section of the snails by cutting off the smaller section. But the exit tips are completely offset to the outside of the boat. It looks like I would need to 90 bends to get the exhaust hose to meet. The exhaust logs and snails are pretty far back.

I've been looking thru a lot of online catalogs and I have seen S curve exhaust hose. It's out there.
