How about your motor is dying while youíre stopping?
or a little bit fast trailering with the motor not running?
then the water hasnít any back pressure and the water will get in the cylinder which has an open valve and if you start than the motor, you will have a bent rod.
the case for the flappers is, that that has happen in the past.

Yeah, boats wouldn't have them if there wasn't some potential for it to happen.

I figure pretty easy to be a surf/wake speed and knock the kill switch off. With the amount of force a surf wake has it could easily pass through the mufflers, which are mostly open chambered fiberglass and run up the riser.

How likely? Not very likely but do you really want to chance it for $8 bucks in rubber flappers? Pay me now or pay me later kind of thing.

Exhaust flappers for 1994 Maristar 225

I have read with interest this thread about the 5 3/8" exhaust flappers for the older Mastercrafts. I need one for my 1994 Maristar. I have reviewed the leads in this thread and so far no luck. I even called Rob in Ontario and he no longer has that pair. I just thought I would check to see if anyone else has run across the need to find these and welcome any and all ideas. I may need to go out and just purchase and cut some rubber as well.

Thanks

5.25 inch flappers

I got set from them... or get a sheet for 1/8 rubber sheeting and cut your own...

the set I got was not 3/8's... you can glue 2 together to make it 1/4 inch - that should be more than enough..

Thanks much. I have a call in to them to see if they still carry the larger one. Online they only had the 3 1/8" flapper.
