Thread: silent or loud

  1. #51
    i decided to leave it on for those no wake zones and late night rides.
    i also like the idea of having a "choice".

    That may bee true, but if you turn them on as soon as you come off plane you'll probably never get stopped.

    Keep the Captains Call, just make sure they are the "Normally Open" type. This way, they won't slam shut if something fails, and you can argue that they are not "cut-outs", depending on the laws where you live. ("Cut-outs" are usually defined as a method to bypass the mufflers. If yours are normally open, when you actuate them, the boat gets quieter, and you can make your case.) If your's aren't normally open, Corsa can convert them for you.
    Retired! Boating full-time now.

    we use silent choice made by Corsa on all of our boats here, however there are 2 types of silent choice, most guys worry that at speed the flaps will close and choke the motor, however you can have the option of having the flaps open all the time with the actuator closing them only when you want it closed!! those are the ones we use, however alot of people have the other one that is normally closed, using the acutator to hold them open. We dont have alot of areas here to idle, or near restaurants etc, big lakes, big ocean, so we have ours open for the most part, but very nice to be able to run the silent when coming into a harbour etc, but this way if the actuator fails, it stays OPEN not closed, so it wont choke the motor

    Full Time Legal Exhaust Systems

    QUICK & QUIET™ CORSA’s non-restrictive mufflers and silencers were developed for boats equipped with thru-hull, full-time open exhaust systems. They are the ideal solution for removing the harsh noise while retaining a distinctive rumble and maximum performance. Quick & Quiet™ systems include two patented transom-mounted ASR Silencer Tips and two ASR interior mufflers with a balance tube and are designed to retrofit existing full-time, thru-hull applications.

    I have this brand for sale in the parts section
    and you DONT HAVE to wire them open
    they are the PERFORMANCE series
    Open on start, you have to engage them
    to quiet the boat, all the other types
    are closed when you start the boat
    much better choice for a 500hp and up

    They do limit how far you can go with the engine due to the short risers and early water discharge. BUT, they are the greatest when you are trying to sneak in or out of anyplace in the wee hrs. Or, getting by the police without drawing too much attention.
