  • Exhaust redo

    Those of you who have heard my 26 know that I need to do something about the noise level. When it comes out in a couple of months for general maintenance, I need to redo the exhaust but, I have no idea how to quiet it down. I have the long fiberglass mufflers that do nothing. What do y'all 26' owners do with yours? How does your 26'er have the exhaust setup?

    In the beginning of the season, I put 4" PVC down elbows on the ends of the hooters. I feel it made a considerable difference, especially considering the price.

      Do you think the hooters help?

        The elbows did the most for me too. I have Rex flappered through hulls and the rubber mufflers but the ells did by far the most.

          Sound down is talked about as being very good too.

            Engine box is soundown, 45* on the exhaust thru hulls. Nothing works. Exhaust noise not engine noise as far as I can determine.

              I have 90 degree ells that are just above the water while on plan. I cut a small vee on the trailing edge to try and prevent vacuum

                Surge chambers, exhaust hose laid low in the belly and 90-degree turndowns. The surge chambers, low hose, and the hoot-a-daps were a winner on the Mack.

                  Surge chambers and hooters with the Holty adaptation, on the list. Hose lying in the bilge will stay full of water and act as a muffler?

                    Yes, at lower rpm's the water will help muffle the exhaust.
