    They are just screw to the Transom with 1 inch SS self taping screws the new pipe extends threw the old flange by 3 inches and is secured with new 1 1/4 SS screws in the same holes. I think that this is the best way to secure the pipe it is very secure but no so secure that if run aground that it will pull the transom off the boat.

    Odd, I talked to Christina Mann at FAE today and she did not offer this as an install option. I much prefer this look to the bracing to my teak. Any ideas if it has to do with something on X10 vs X25?

      If you re-read the posting you'll see he mentioned that he worked with Larry on this mounting option. I don't think it is standard, but what I've learned in working with them on mine is that they'll build you almost anything you want as each one is hand built. You just have to be clear in your asking and understanding of what's possible.

      Another option, although more involved on the install is a thru hull mount. It's the cleanest looking, same as earlier poster as it has no mounts and most secure but also the most involved. See my thread here... https://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk...ad.php?t=78353

        I had read your write up (good job) already.....your FAE install loooks great, but as you mention it was very difficult. If Larry Mann was confident in the design he created for Rdahler, I like that install option better.

        • So I already have a FAE and love it. My question is I have two mufflers inside the engine compartment as well. Would removing these make things even quieter?

          • May not affect it much since the exhaust is under the water but if it did anything it would make it louder. Consider when you put the FAE on you lost your exhaust flaps. The mufflers act as another chamber water would have to get through before it got into the block and did damage. That alone would be reason enough not to remove them. No good reason to not leave those mufflers in place.

            • I talked with Larry about removing the mufflers and his thought was it would reduce sound but much less than the overall FAE install - like you probably wouldn't notice. The theory is that the mufflers have potential to have a sight vibration and this could get transmitted into the boat.

              Honestly I'd leave them as I don't think it will make much difference. My boat had no mufflers so I didn't have to consider this
