Default Exhaust Probs need help!

When my Volvo b24 cuts out of flips in the water the boat will dip on 1 side where the exhaust is. Water will slowly enter the exhaust and the boat will take on water. Only as far as the exhaust manifold though not sure if it can get past there. What can i do to provent this happening as i don't want water to go near my engine too much.

Many thanks

Most of the time when the boat stalls in the water, or even when your bringing it in...its gunna cut off and if you dont catch it in time, it may rock back and bring in a bit of water, just make sure you pick it up and lean the exhaust bak to get that water out the pipe, even my sv27 will take in a bit of water. my Bj26 exhaust sits in the water, no biggy here. Yea like misshydro said, counter balance, maybe this wont effect your boat much.
