Default what mufflers?

I am planning on putting mufflers on my Scarab w/ Innovation 600s. The exhausts are Eickert aluminun headers dry until the thru transom tips. They have a pretty serious bark. They sound great actually, but i have a 3 1/2 tr old and a 7 month old and they dont seem to enjoy the sound the way I do I dont think the new CMIs will work and have also heard less than stellar things about their performance, mechanisms sticking and such... Does anyone run the gatlin style mufflers on their rigs? If so, any thoughts? Any other suggestions? thanks in advance.

Regards, Mark

We went with Zoomers. No power loss!

I tried the GGB's this past summer, and I really like em. Not too quiet, yet they take the sting out of the crackle. Would put em on the next boat too.

A freind of mine has the Gatlins on his boat, they work ok but are still pretty loud.

I run GGB extremes through full dry CMI's. They work well, but as far as I know, they are not available anymore.

No water at all? Have you had the DB tested? The noise cops are getting very particular.

Rob- The guy that does some work on my boat has put a few pairs of the CMIs on other boats and they have had problems with the mechanisms sticking open and closed. I also dont think they work for me because I cant have too much water build up in the pipes due to reversion concerns. My exhaust is dry to the end where water dumps around it as it exits.

Fast fun 2- How do the zoomers work? too quiet? Not quiet enough?

As far as I know GGB is gone? Out of business?

No water at all. So far, I have been getting away with it.

They take a lot of the edge off it. Not the quietest but we couldnt get GGbs.
