don't try to start a fight and make yourself again out to be BMOC where there isn't the need...

and BTW alot of "fast street" cars make passes thru the mufflers
because they understand the concept above

BMOC? Is that a Big Mouth Obnoxious Chit?

Merry Christmas!

There are also race tracks now both circle and drag that require some kind of muffling devices so you are correct. What I see that gets me pizzed is the arrogant azzhats with boats, snowmobiles and Harleys that just have to have it as loud as possible and then they wear HEARING PROTECTION!!!! No friggin waaay, you want your **** stupid loud then YOU should at least have to endure the noise you are creating, Smitty

My suggestion is to use constraint, consideration and finesse when dealing with complaints from those who might bring negative outcomes to your boating situation. As others said here, learn and know the local noise laws and times and stay within those limits so you can protect your interests.
Beyond that, the GGB mufflers and those from Aqua Power LTD in Florida seem to greatly reduce decibils without reducing power much. Try them, you might actually like the effect more than you might initially think.

Best Regards,

By the end of a long day on the water, I'm usually tired of listening to my own noise...let alone, hearing someone else's tub.

Plan to have the air cylinders installed then. I am anxious to hear them open thru the muffs, it should still bit quieter. But it sounds great now and noticed no speed loss with them. Nice to be able to talk in the no wake zones and hear the tunes.

I'd like to have the db checked as it still has a bark to it. Maybe I'm getting old after 20yrs at the drag strip or just my hearing is old...

I still don't wear a seat belt cuz they say I HAVE to... pizzes me off... I hate that. But the mufflers run as fast and sound good to me. I only bought them to fly under the radar while in FL for the winter but try the Kool-Aid, you might like it too
