    Clay,

    The first section of vent pipe is a 90 degree elbow that has been straightened out.

    Looks funny,Sloppy, Lazy but no problem I know of it's rated vent.

    Right there on the inlet to the right opposite the flue. Where the break in the insulation is.

    The draft hood has a tapered end for a reason, right. That is so you can shove that sucker right down snug and screw it togeather. Neither of which they got right.

    Needs a single-wall to b-vent adapter at the draft hood I do believe.

    I can't see a problem based on this photo. So long as the inner liner of the flue sits properly on the diverter, it looks OK to me.
