Noise
Further away from the helm = less noise
Some vessels don't have the required space below decks to run exhaust through there as well, other boats are unimaginative and are just slapped together

"this fits here, go get a hammer" kind of thing

:idea:

I don't like side exhaust because I do a lot of drift fishing and it makes it a lot easier to take a slug while at drift.

My boat has fish holds under most of the work deck, so the only place to go w/ wet exhaust is sideways. I expect that is the case w/ many boats.

Rear exhaust: Quiet, less diesel smell in the cabin/cockpit

Side exhaust: Maybe easier to install, less chance to flood the turbo/exhaust of the engine with a slug of water, but will fill your cockpit with diesel fumes.

What about....

Is it quieter to the fish on the troll, much like a dry exhaust??? I'm not trying to compare the two, but we all have heard about it...

Now I have to much time on my hand...
