My 88 mariner 3297 mufflers are so loud I can’t stand it. It’s mostly at low rpm. Is this a low water volume or need new mufflers. Thanks

Are you sure it has mufflers? My 3607 does not have any mufflers and it’s pretty loud.

Most likely muffler internal baffles are shot.

Could be "both"! As MakinTime says, our two boats (3607) don't have mufflers, just long exhausts. They are louder than muffled ones but if you're pumps are not pumping all the water they should then they will also be louder.

How are your raw water pumps? When was the last time they had new impellers, cams or a major rebuild?
