fiber glass hull and exhaust thru the back of it

Post by wg5936 »

pretty simple ? for someone, I bought a marsh master fiber glass hull, is there an issue with running the exhaust through the back of the hull using a three inch pipe and a plate to bolt it on. Running a 520 in the boat. thxs Wayne

Ran that same combo for two years. Never an issue

thanks, didn't know if i should put something in there to keep the heat off of the fiberglass, but assuming the prop moves enough air to keep cooled off.

It takes alot to burn fiberglass and it doesn't get that hot.
