    Hi all,

    at the moment I am starting a lot of small projects on my boat. I am Daniel From Germany (sorry for my english :-))and I bought last year my first Malibu Sunsetter. Now I am adding some additional things to get a wakesetter set up. Now I like to share my first little project or change on the boat.

    Malibu Sunsetter LXI with an Mercruiser MPI MAG 350 Engine, Velvet 1:1 Drive.

    1. Check the room between elbow exhaust and engine block or gearbox

    2. Check exhaust hose at the transom

    If this is like my than the exhaust is vibrating on the engine. Bad if is wearing off the exhaust fiberglass elbow:-( 

    So the idea is to move the exhaust hose a little towards the transom.

    The overlapping between exhaust hose and transom outlet is more than 10cm. So there should be no problem if you shorten the hose 2cm (1") at the transom side and the overlapping is still 8cm.

    Next step was to  shorten 1-2cm (1") the exhaust hose and move the hole unit for 1cm towards the transom.

    Voila, room between engine and exhaust elbow. 9cm overlapping transom outlet and still 1 cm free for thermal extensions:-)

    Cheers Daniel
