RE: Engine room ear protection

I do not wear ear protection or plugs.* The engine and engine room are not that loud as the exhaust is heat wrapped including the muffle to raw water muffler.* Most of the noise is the engines running.* The 671 rpm is about 1200 to 1500.* The Perkins gen set engine makes as much noise as the 671.* Non of the mechanics have wear them either.

RE: Engine room ear protection

P/F The engines are also pretty darn quiet when your on the dock as well. My engine hasn't made a peep for a couple of winter months. We'll be crankin' up the noise maker hery soon though!

RE: Engine room ear protection

Capt Carl ... Why do I think that handsome dude in the wheelhouse is looking at my crew through a two way mirror? By the way, you installed it backwards!

I like your wheelhouse a lot better than mine. The stove is a nice touch also. She is ready for adventure on the St Johns' river and points south.
