KTL 223 vlog the Beast has a new voice


The Elastomuffle is no more - replaced with a Slugomuffle (patent pending) and now the Beast has a new voice. I have lived with her voice for four years now and suddenly its different. It is though Jill's cut glass home county's accent had suddenly changed to a Brummie bir overnight - very weird.

    Why don’t you put a longer section of slog0muffle onto the exhaust and therefore get better muffling?

    aha – the mistake you made is that it is ordinary 2 inch pipe

    no muffling

    would like to muffle properly soon as possible – but can wait for the winter

    in order to fit the bigger size elastomuffle has to be further back up the pipe otherwise the floor in the stern locker will not fit

    The ‘new’ sound of the beast is suspiciously like that of an old Seagull at full bore….are you sure you haven’t shoe-horned one in without letting on!?……what a hoot!

    Hi Dylan,

    I’d be tempted to try fitting an elbow to the transom pipe such that the exhaust lets out underwater. Just evaluate the hose run for possible siphoning problems. Shouldn’t be any more back pressure than a water-lift type muffler. Committee: what do you think?

    like the sound :-) all the old motorcycle enthusiast will be round to Wisbech to hear the slug sounds like an old british eingle cyclinder bike, may confuse the MOBO’s a bit they may think it is ”Tuned” and very powerful ……

    1. cut a longer length of slugomuffle and raise as a swan neck but no so high that floorboards wont fit and then 90 degree bend so that exhaustgoes into the water makes a vast difference to the engine note of outboards once exiting into the water, u could bodge it using ”slugomuffle” just see if it works…

    2. add Vetus water silencer box the are about as big as a biscuit tin, exhaust gas goes in the top with injected water, and flows out bottom via your exhaust pipe.to the rear, water and expansion of gasses in Vetus silencer muffle the ”crackle” of the exhaust…
