Baffle plate to help prevent water back surge ~ engine damage, can and has occurred, some use straight pipes, until that one un lucky day.

You can use soft walled hoses from the exhaust risers down to the elbows.

Those metal downtubes look weird to me, almost like galvanized truck piping bent by a muffler shop, if that's not stainless I'd get rid of it.

Buy some muffler wrap, at any auto part store. Follow directions. Wrap around end of pipe. Let sealant, fully cure. Two wraps at most. Once sealant cures. It will not come off, so a little at a time. Re install hose.

Probably cheapest just to run the silent mufflers you have, that way all you need is some soft wall pipe and clamps to compete the project. Easiest too and the neighbors will appreciated it on the early morning runs. I wish my boat was a little quieter.

I'm old, mufflers pls.

I love the sound the boat makes as it cuts across the glass in the morning.

Its pretty hard to keep a slalom course permit on a lake these days, anything to keep the neighbors happy, a course owner has to ask each and every neighbor each year to renew the course permit on the lake, a lot of work. Currently running inline mufflers and in addition to the inline mufflers will be installing additional baffled turned down exhaust tips, just to keep the peace. Will see what the rpm drop may or may not be with this set up.
