    With the exhaust it's mainly how you drive the boat, if your buzzing the shore all day near houses, your gonna get popped. Otherwise it's the officers descression, 9 times out of 10 some one called in a complaint.

    That boat looks exactly like a guy's sunkist, from the hot boat boards, that went by "Dellaware Dave".
    I dont know if He is still around but He would know about the sunkist hulls...Hal

    10-4 take a measurement of the shoe how deep it is, make sure it is at least level with bottom of boat or keel line, also is ur shoe flat or does it have a taper to it, then measure ur angle on ur ride plate to the bottom of hull right next to intake at back of boat make sure the boat in level, a digital protractor is best but a dial one will get u close
    let me know

    Have not seen him on here in a while. Since he sold the boat. Some of the norther va. guys may see it that know the boat and chime in. It has a Olds so put a egg under the gas pedal and don't hold it wide open for long Looks like his last post was 01-09-2008 when he sold the boat to NY.

    noise levels in NY

    Noise Law
    Highlights
    *
    A maximum of 90 dB is allowed for
    vessels subjected to a stationary test.

    *
    A maximum of 75 dB is allowed for
    vessels tested while underway.


    *
    It is illegal to alter, or make inoperable,
    an existing muffler system.


    *It is illegal to manufacture or sell
    a vessel or engine that cannot meet
    the sound level requirements.

    *It is illegal to install a cut-out in a
    vessel. A cut-out is considered to be
    any device that allows a vessel’s exhaust
    to bypass the muffler system,
    and thereby increase vessel noise
    levels. Systems that decrease vessel
    noise are allowable.

    *
    If an officer has reason to believe
    your boat does not meet these standards,
    you must submit to a test. If
    your vessel fails the test, the officer
    may direct you to take immediate
    and reasonable measures to correct

    the problem.



    F NY.... Thats all i have to say about that noise..

    In the event your vessel is found to be in violation
    of Section 44 of the Navigation Law, there
    are several options available to you to remedy
    the problem.
    Illegal Cut-Out
    If your vessel has been outfitted with a cut-out,
    you could do one of three things. If your
    dealer has sold you a boat with one of these
    devices after this law was enacted in 1993 you
    could request that the dealer remove the device,
    presumably at their expense. If you had
    the device installed yourself, you could ask a
    marina or dealer to remove it at your expense.
    Finally, you could have the device rendered
    inoperable by having it welded in the closed
    (quiet) position and removing the wiring.
    Excessive Noise
    There are several products on the market that
    are designed to lessen vessel noise, such as
    Corsa Marine’s Quick &Quiet Plus, Quick &
    Quiet II, and Equalizer, and Gil Marine’s
    Stealth System, and Power Tip mufflers.
    Some products are designed to divert the engine
    exhaust through the propeller hub and
    typically cost between $650 and $1,100, not
    including installation. Other systems muffle
    exhaust through the use of muffler tips, at a
    cost of approximately $350 to $900, again not
    including installation. For more information
    on these systems you can check the following
    web sites:
    www.gilmarine.com www.corsaperf.com
