  • Hooters question.

    Those of you that use the hooters, does the water exit those two small holes or is some forced up and out the top, back ? If I put flappers on the back, will that effect the exhaust gasses getting out ? What is the purpose of the baffles, I didn't put any in ?

    Most of the water exits the 2 holes on the bottom of each hooter. I think the baffles slow water flow when backing down or stopping and keep some water suspended in the exhaust all the way out. I don't think adding flaps or inserts will cause any problems, but they should make the boat quieter. After curing the shaft vibration, inserts and flappers have moved up my list.
