Fairline 36 Turbo - Fishtail Exhausts

Postby jeantaylor976 » Sun Feb 14, 2016 10:26 pm

We have recently purchased a Turbo. It has the extended exhausts which send the exhaust gases out below the waterline. Does anyone know if these slow the boat down when on plane and if it is possible to remove these and run with the exhaust directly out of the transom without the extension? Would be grateful for any help on this. Many thanks. :?

Sorry, I can't help with your question, but if you do decide to remove them could you let me know if you want to sell one please?

Cheers,
Chris

Hello,
I think that I have them too on my Corniche. Mine exit the transom and I think that they will be out of the water when on the plane althoigh on auto pilot I have no intention of looking at them :D :D :D
Not on the plane I would have thought that they quieten the exhaust??

Cheers, Col.

My Turbo 36 has them too. I don't think they make any difference to the performance.
The T36 has no silencer in the exhaust so everything helps to keep the noise down by exiting under the water.
I'd leave them on!

Cheers

Hi, many thanks for the advice. Think I will be leaving them, as you say it will keep the noise down.
As a matter of interest, I have a bimini cover for sale to fit the Turbo 36 including all the framework. If you happen to know anyone who may be looking for one of them, I would be grateful if you could pass on the details.
Many thanks
Jean

1) The "fishtails"
Actualy they're called exhast boots but never mind. They are constructed to evacuate exhaust gases/raw water at idle/low revs through main openings plus extra ports; at speed by the considerable vacuum created by the "slipstream" of sea water that passes the opening. I'm currently re-powering to 2x450 hp and I will keep the boots in place even with larger dia. exhaust hose. I have once heard at T36 without them. Don't want to ever hear that insane racket again.

2) Bimini
Interesting. Pics? Price? I already got a new interior with dinette in lieu of the SB side couch so why not do something outdoors, too ...
There is nothing -- absolutely nothing -- even half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.

See some of you don't have silencers? Sure? I have, but they are well hidden. When I went looking for them I discovered that the screws holding the thing together were everything else than tight after all these years. Lucky to be afloat. Very strange to put them so difficult to see and to reach.

I had a water pump fail on an engine last year, so wanted to inspect the length of the rubber exhaust hose for heat damage. I traced the pipe from the back of the engine, and it goes straight back to the transom.
Where are your silencers?
(Mine's a 1990 boat).

Cheers

Mine is a 1986. In flow silencers. Just after the bathroom in the aft cabin, and under/ in front of the closet om the other side. SB is easy to reach after som disambling of the interior, the other side close to impossible to reach (and see).

Hi I wonder if anyone can help please. We have rubber exhausts on our turbo and one has split quite badly and worried at speed could totally fall off. Has this happened to anyone and if so what did they do? Can they still be bought anywhere as spares? Can you buy off the shelf stainless steel? Or do you have to have them made? Would appreciate any help or pointing in the right direction. Many thanks.
