My favorite lake water level has gotten so high that when backing in the boat to float the tail pipe is under water. Is this a concern?

Can I make a rear exhaust snorkel from a 3 in diameter stainless steel drier pipe? To be used only when putting in and taking out the boat. Its under longer when taking the boat out.

Thanks in advance.

As long as your engine is running, submerging your tailpipe is fine. The water fording depth is 30", almost the height of the Sport tires (as indicated on you tailgate).
