Southern Marine Surveying
This exhaust hose has been repaired with ductape, and also is being supported by the vinyl strap as seen. When it comes to the exhaust system on your boat, the utmost care must be taken to ensure it is properly maintained and cared for because of the possibility of exhaust leaks and CO poisoning among other things. Never risk repairing an exhaust hose with the "cheap" method as seen above. It's also important to properly secure the hose with a metal band or strap that will not get hot and burn like the vinyl one seen in the picture. Hire a marine surveyor to inspect this and many other things on your next prospective boat purchase!
