Default Excess Exhaust Fumes

I just purchased a 2007 Maxum 2400 SE and we are smelling exhaust fumes throughout the cockpit area when running at both low and high speeds so much so that my wife begins to cough. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Welcome aboard.

Have you inspected the exhaust hoses in the engine compartment?

What exhaust bellows do you have? Full bellows or tube that only connects to transom side, if the latter folks have complained exhaust fumes can flow back into the boat.

I appreciate the advice Mike.
Do you know if it is a major job to have a mechanic switch the exhaust outlet from a single tube to the full bellows?

Thanks,
James

Not a big job but the drive will need to be removed to pull it over the bell housing flange.

Did you verify you have the tube type or a hole in the exhaust bellows?

Thanks again Mike.
I haven't been able to check whether it is a tube or full bellows as the boat is at the cottage and I'm at home. Will check when I go there next week.
