Default Ontario (Canadian) Muffler law

This subject is being covered in several sections on this board. Please review the attached link to a Canadian government site.

http://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/marinesafety...e-menu-305.htm

Basically, we must have working mufflers! Some disagreement surrounds the use of switchable systems. However, you must still have mufflers. I think we can have systems that switch from mufflers to through drive into the water exhaust. But "never" wide open.

I already get far too much attention. So I'm trying to figure out how to comply to this law without damaging my 600sci. That way when pulled over, I'm legal. Then after the usual "what kind of a boat is this" "who builds it" questions along with the standard safety equipment check, I can be on my way ASAP.

Don't try that on the USA side!! They'll call a helicopter or worse! I always slow down when going by the Coasties to make sure they don't want to stop me. Most of them know my boat now anyway though.
