Ah, exhausts down through the stern drive?
I'm just curious since a friend of mine has a 21ft DC with a (newly
installed) Merc 454, but with wet exhausts through two tailpipes at the
back. The move from 350cui to 454cui was more than I'd expect,
especially in forms of sound, cause there's no silencers...
The boat did atleast 50 knots at full speed, but I suspect he'll go
further than that with this engine, when he'll change the propeller.
