Great work!!

... and food for a future project.

"Curse you, Red Carl..." :D

Serious question.... Will you then route/add the passive 3" air intake hose up from the current side ports up to forward of the engines to allow for air flow collection from that point and back to the new exhaust hose?

"The six outlets at the stern of the boat are all bilge exhausts, I now have a total of six 3” diameter bilge exhausts at my stern, four of which are passive and the other two are forced air through my bilge blower motors (these two will also add to the passive when the blowers are off). The total is 42.36 square inches of exhaust venting. The two forward “Intake” cowls under the long Marinette side cowls are hard piped into the engine room through two rectangular aluminum ducts measuring 8 ¼” by 1 ½” which is a total of 24.75 square inches of static intake air (higher when underway) dumping fresh intake air to the sides of both engines port and starboard. I will not modify or try to extend the route of these two factory installed ducts; they are good where they are by design."


Just don't forget to calculate the air going from the intakes down the carbs to make the engines run.
