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?

I say so what our boat has as much right to be there as their sailboats. Funny thing, the marina where I am located the sailors and powerboaters seem to get along splendidly.

I have one of those 3607's without mufflers....
Funny story... years ago we went up to Lexington Harbor in Lake Huron. There were many sailboats there and they were taking up all the electrical outlets so we couldn't plug in. Not really an issue, as we just ran on battery overnight, but the next morning we wanted to take showers, so I started the stbd engine to get heat. Of course the engine had to idle the whole time... ~20-25 minutes, but we got nice hot showers. I got a standing ovation as we left, but I was laughing too!!

I have a 3807 and am contemplating the same thing. I haven't taken measurements yet but didn't think the geometry would work for a Vernalift from what I see. If you post some pics of your install, and the Centek part numbers, that would be great.
