Anyone know what theese are called or who makes them? The boat im looking at hydrolocked off shore ONCE in the 10 years the guy owned it. Will theese help? Evidently the flapper came off and they took a wave in the ass. The engine has since been replace and it hasnt happened since BUT id hate to encounter the same issue.

Salisbury Muffler... I had one on my General Marine, I liked it because the ball prevented water from coming up the engine. Sometimes on the drift it could be annoying but only if you think about it. Kept transom clean, quiet? Water gurgles but I'd do it again, not even sure if they are still made. I haven't seen two, but I can understand why.

Never really bothered me, but sometimes other people. If you were drifting, you'd hear the ball inside of it bounce back and forth inside the elbow... I did like the security though...

Besides the look of it, what else is bad with a dry exhaust? Been toying with it, because I've heard good things about tuna fishing with them, like the idea of no exhaust run on the back deck taking up a big chunk of space. Anyone else have anything to chime in with? How much does it cost vs. a wet run in a sense. I know they allegedly have longer engine life with them too? I like some of then newer designs they have to keep water out too...

exhaust

A proper exhaust system is what is needed. The wet elbow should be a minimum of 12' above WL and more is better. From that point on everything must be below the bend in the wet elbow. Many boats are built with bad exhaust systems and it is a major cause of serious valve and motor trouble.

I had a dry stack on my last boat. Id rather suck start a 12 gauge than spend any more hours of my life listening to one.

Af for the photo of the muffler setup. That wount work, no room
