if David Scott and Randy Scism are using them on all there race boats I dont believe there is a loading or reversion problem, Water patrol do scratch there head, they work great. Sean might have a picture of Daves 36 skater with the straight turndowns. they really look cool and again quiet the huge Sterlings to stupid quiet. Jim

CMI can also build any type of turndown with very tight radius bends.

We seemed to have reverted back to 50s technology for 100mph+ boats.
For those of you as old as me, it was common to see exhausts that were redirected just below the waterline on old Chris Crafts, Owens, etc cruisers of the 50s and 60s.
Too funny.

You're correct but I don't know of a good alternative at this time. Wish we didn't have this noise issue but with all shorelines being developed as they are these days resulting in more and more people always present, I think this issue will only get worse over time.

JRZ-
I sent an email about pipes to Randy's address, with a photo of the boat's transom.

I think the best thing to do is buy a MTI. Speed Racer is running 1500 HP with no mufflers and is very quite. The water patrol just set and watch him cruise by in stealth like mode. Nothing better to see than a cat running 150 plus with no niose, it's cool, Daves is the same way, you just don't hear them coming!
