i got pulled over in flagler county and the fish cop told me that he shouldn't be able to hear the boat from 50 feet. he also told me he doesn't like loud boats. i have a 496ho mag. we have a hardin marine store(keith eickert) in palm coast. the boys there sold me the turn down mufflers. hopefully that keeps the fish cop happy. the officer doesn't even have a DB meter. he told me its up to discrestion. that aint right.

Right or not it is up to the officer to decide what is too loud if the db test cannot be performed as outlined in the book. From someone who has had his share of noise problems my advice to you would be to not ever slow down!

I just had all the mufflers cut out of my cat. Lets people know i am coming up on them at high speeds and keeps the jet ski's on their toes.
I got a kick out of the can't hear the boat at 50 foot comment. You can hear my boat at half a mile if you listen and that is the way I prefer it. It's just safer that way.
