Whoa! Look who's back!! The internet wires must have finally thawed out up there!

 

Haha! Yeah, been a busy winter for me. Got some interesting things on the go. More on that later.

 

I tried to message DarksideR, so he does not miss this message.....but says his inbox is full. Not sure if anyone else knows how to contact him.

Just wanna make sure he sees that, in case he does want a system. (I am not affiliated with FAE in any way...just like to help others and pay it forward when possible)

Thanks to you and Chris DiFranco messaging me on Instagram, I got my order placed in time. Can't wait to get surfing WITHOUT my drysuit and boots! Can't wait to see just how quiet the boat gets with the FAE

In case anyone missed out on the other group buy....just saw this on another site, posted by someone else. Since I started the original one on TO site and then shared here on CC, sounds like Nautique is now doing a group buy....but as long as you mention this coupon code below you can still get in. Don't know how many have bought yet, but you get guaranteed $50off...once 7 people do it, $70 off...

 

I just want to let everyone know that if you happened to have missed out on this group buy through TO, FAE is currently offering a group buy to PN members. I know that the TO buy was shared on CC and some of those owners were able to get in on it, so why not pass the PN discount on to TO as well and maybe you can help get their discount level up. My FAE from the TO buy just shipped today!!!

Here are the details:


The group buy will run from 03/19/17 – 04/1/17. Anyone ordering online can use promo code “PNSPRING17”, or when ordering by phone, you must mention that you are with the Nautique group buy. When entered, this code will apply a $50 discount to the order. Once the group buy reaches 7 or more people, the discount will increase to $70 off each order. All online orders are processed manually, meaning that no charge will be made to your card until you have received an order confirmation. This discount cannot be combined with other offers, and is valid on direct, new orders only.

Anyone interested can learn more about available options at http://www.freshairexhaust.com/about-us/fae-options/. Specific to Nautique, the two applicable options are the blended welds (+$40) and internal flapper (+$40). Orders can be placed by phone 512.647.7321 or online at http://www.freshairexhaust.com/your-boat/. Measurement verification will be necessary as Nautique’ s exhaust outlet placement varies from boat to boat. Once an order has been placed, we will follow up with you and provide a form detailing what measurements we need to verify on your boat.

A little information about Fresh Air Exhaust – The Original Surf Exhaust:

Join the thousands of other boat owners that have upgraded their boat with the CLEANEST and QUIETEST exhaust available.
Why FAE?
* PROTECT YOUR FAMILY - FAE reduces Carbon Monoxide and other exhaust gas at least 90%
* STEREO UPGRADE / NO MORE YELLING!- FAE reduces exhaust noise levels approx. 50%
* FAE does not change boat handling, performance, or wake
* FAE is patented and an American made, family owned and operated business
HOW DOES IT WORK?
*FAE works by injecting the boat’s exhaust gases into the prop wash, pushing the exhaust away from the boat
Order today at www.FreshAirExhaust.com or 512.647.7321. We are the ORIGINAL SURF EXHAUST!

Not meaning to bring up an old thread but does anyone know if there are any group buys going on for the FAE system. I’ve decided I definitely want one soon for my 14’ SV244. TIA.

They usually only allow the group buys during late fall, winter and early spring cause they are so slammed during the summer. Its well worth it tho IMO. I installed on my 14' SV244 and its one of my favorite mode, I did use 5200 so it would not come off, I know JJOcean had some issues with it coming off and the heads popping off the stainless screws. I also replaced the stainless screws they sent....with grade 8 screws which are stronger. FAE also makes curved washers so you can thru-bolt it thru transom of the boat.

With this deep V, there IS spray...its not bad enough that I cannot live with it while surfing, but it can be a little annoying at times. When you order.....ask for them to add the "spray relief plate"....they say in testing its supposed to help and actually they have been telling me for 3 months they were gonna send me a "spray relief plate" that i could add to my FAE, but have not done it yet. If you look at the factory FAE on the Nautique boats....you will see it comes on there, its the small flange that wraps around the pipe about 4" above the tip.

Still, very big difference in sound reduction for me and zero fumes. You can easily talk to surfer from boat without yelling and surfer can easily hear music since exhaust is not pointed directly at him/her. For what its worth....when I bought mine, they were $480....plus another $40 for the blended welds....and you could pay another $40 for internal flapper, but on your boat you do not need that since your existing flapper will stay in place. So $520 total. Group buy could get $50-$70 off depending on how many people buy. Guess it depends on if you wanna wait till winter and if its worth it to you.

Here are a couple pics of the install....once it dried, I cut the 5200 silicone from around the flange so it looked better, but this thing has not budged and I have at least 60hrs on it surfing, cruising regular around 25.....and couple times up to 40mph cause I was testing a new prop

Thanks for the advice Infinitysurf. I've been doing quite a bit of research on these and it seems like a no brainer. A discount would be nice but either way I'm going to order it. My wife hates the fumes and I hate that I cant even hear my 6 Rev 10's from the tower when I'm wakeboarding/surfing and killing everyone's ears in the boat trying. The only downside I see is the spray issue when surfing so I'll definitely ask about that spray plate. Hopefully I can get one ordered today.

I actually got a FEDEX notification today that they shipped out my spray relief plate...so pretty cool! Hopefully that does the trick but again, even with the spray, the pros far outweigh the cons IMO

Awesome. I ended up placing my order this morning and Christina said that they've changed the design a little since they initially made it for our boats, so hopefully its not an issue. Either way I'm stoked about it. I'll post pics when I get it.

We are actually about to order one of these as well for our 13 SV233. Keep us in the loop how it goes! I'll update if we end up ordering one too of course.
