Sorry is this has been gone over before but what are the pro's and con's?
My exhaust is on the portside about 17' forward of transom, at that 4 or 6" above the waterline. So no real chance of taking water up that thing...
My thing is for tuna trolling I wonder if strikes will be closer to the stern as its much quieter back there. I used to hear that bluefin trollers that had dry stacks had that happen. Between the canyons and out east can't wait to find out.
Not like canyon tuna and marlin do not eat 6' of the transom anyways. I am amazed at how close those fish get everytime. I could have reached out and touched a few blue marlin eating teasers...
I wonder how much exhaust noise they hear with all the prop wash and engine noise ???
