Fresh Air Exhaust - hull mount w/ pics

Thought I'd show you a fresh install on a FAE using the thru hull mounting system.

As you can see this system doesn't use any of the other support rods, but rather has the tubing extend into exhaust hose in the boat. While it was defiantly more work, I think it's the most factory looking mount option you can do, which is what I wanted!

The standard system comes with 3 holes in the flange. Being the anal person I am I decided to add 3 more to give it a symmetrical look and ensure that it's staying put. Behind the screws is dreaded 5200... this was recommended by Larry to doubly ensure it's 'stuck' on the boat. I also added a T-bolt clamp inside, per Larry's recco, to give it some more security there also.

I test fitted about 4 times (more than needed) to line up screw holes, mark new ones, mark the tape, etc. Overall I think it looks great.

Here's my thread about removing the existing exhaust flanges, not fun, but not bad. Worst part was tearing off some of the gel coat.

Tape after cutting it with FAE in place... saved lots of time with excess 5200 clean up - definitely worth the extra step!
If you look close you'll also see the markings for the new holes at 12, 4, and 7 o'clock.



New T-clamp, closest to the transom

I think the ideal the distance they aim for is 3" above the prop nut.

Just looked at the install sheet and it says should be 1.5 to 2.5".

Looking at different pictures of these and it sure looks like they all have differing amounts of the snorkel down in the water.

I love this install and really prefer it. How difficult was it to get the measurements to them?
