1988 Sunsetter

Recommended Posts

BREZ

Purchased a 1988 Sunsetter and went for the maiden voyage yesterday and never got off the trailer. The boat started filling with water so I pulled it back up the ramp and found the the exhaust line is seperated. It appears the pipe is fiberglass. Any special epoxy to use.

Any suggestions?

Not able to post pictures, new to the site, if I canfigure out how to post pictures I will attach some

You can get a generic replacement fiberglass muffler for about $100. By the time you buy the fiberglass cloth, resin,...not really worth fixing the old one.

You have to be a paid member to attach pic's directly to a post...otherwise you load your pics onto picture hosting site (like photobucket, flickr,...) and insert a link here.

Not sure but I didn't think nufflers came factory on the '88s. If your boat does not have mufflers and has straight pipes instead, you can use grey hot water PVC pipe. I'm not sure about the glue,....if it is special or not. But you can ask the people at Home Depot. That's where I purchased the pipe that I used on my '88 Ski Centurion.

They had silent choice (I'm pretty sure thats the name) fiberglass mufflers in 88 and it is easy to glass over the hole, if it is crusshed or the ends are frayed its not worth it
