I had them on mine and yeah they are LOUD!! Put turbo mufflers on it costs as much and sounds just as good.

Loud airboats are what is killing airboats. If we do get them quiter then we will not be able to run them.

im with moritz on this one ,the really noisey airboats are getting attention in a bad way that hurts the guys that try to put together a quiet airboat for the simple reason of trying to keep the peace with the people who are complaining
contempt prior to investigation will keep a man in everlasting ignorance

Would rather have a quiet boat, one that does not draw a complaint, one that does not give passengers a headache, one that you can ride without ear muffs..... And enjoy the ride instead of hiding from the noise...

But this is just my opinion and my boat...
