A car exhaust will work in a boat but will be more critical in set-up.  The problem is that cars have to be designed for widely variable throttle openings, whereas boats often operate at full throttle, so the optimum tuning length is harder to find.
Another thing you may find is that it will be "peaky", needing even more critical setting as that pipe appears to use flat plate technology instead of the more usual divergant/convergant cones.
For some theory look to the 'master' -
