Straight from the PA Fish and Boat Commision Website

NOISE RESTRICTIONS AND MUFFLING DEVICES
It is illegal for a boat to be so loud that it is an extraordinary annoyance or distraction to persons in the vicinity of the that boat." Boat motors must be equipped with an efficient muffling system or device in good working order. Most boats and motors that come directly from the manufacturer are adequately muffled. Boat exhaust systems may not be modified in any manner that will reduce or eliminate the effectiveness of the muffler or muffler system. Cut-outs (muffler bypasses) are illegal in Pennsylvania. Boats without a muffler or muffling system must be backfitted before being operated.
