Fae

Installed my FAE last night. Good Lord that thing was a pain to install. But that thing feels rock solid. Can't wait to get it out this weekend. I was so frustrated by the time I finished I wanted to go out last night. I think my wife would have shot me tho when she found out at 10pm I was in the water.

can you post a pic or 2 of it installed? And after you run it I'd like to hear your before and after thoughts!

Yes I will. That's the main reason I wanted it. More for noise than co2

What made it such a pain? I'm planning on installing it over winter or early spring.

Well had I had a metal cutting saw would have made it easier. A hacksaw it's not the way. Just a lot of bending over. Took about 3 hours. Could have done it in 2 or a little over had I had the right stuff. But it was also about 95 degrees outside.

Well I didn't get a video because.... Well. Lazy. But anyone on the fence about the FAE don't even think about it. If you're looking for the best stereo upgrade as well as co2 relief... The FAE is definitely the ticket. The noise reduction was quite substantial. It's an upgrade for sure. If I ever own another boat it'll def have one as well.

I have an FAE on my boat and feel the same way! Love hearing the water chine spray, or the stereo, no longer do have to listen to the droning of the exhaust...

The Co2 reduction is a nice benefit as well as we just started trying our hand at surfing.

Put mine on a month ago - absolutely love it and won't have another boat without it. Did it for noise reduction reasons.

Install took some time as I didn't want to screw it up so measured again and again before I cut anything. Used sawzall with metal blade and worked great. Used my neighbor's grinder to take any burrs off.
