I have a pair of brand new, just out of the box, Vernatone (manufactured by Centex) wet mufflers.    I purchased these anticipating replacing the original cast iron Chris Craft units on my 1966 31 Commander.  subsequently found original parts, so no longer need these. 

These are 30 inches long, a little over 8 inches in diameter, 3 1/2 inch diameter inlet and outlet.   Part number 1000105.  These are listed for $265 each, plus shipping from the manufacturer. Asking $400 for the pair. Will sell only as a pair. Will consider any reasonable offer. These are rated to handle a small block Chevy (350) or other engines of similar displacement.   These are located in Gig Harbor, Washington.  Contact nyhuis@centurytel.net for more information.

Hi Charlene:

Thanks for the tip.    I didn't realize that the public was permitted to view classified ads on the CCCC site.     I've got these mufflers posted on the local Craig's List, but have as yet only received one response, that I believed - due to the awkward grammar, suspiciously appearing to be a poor translation into English, and the offer to pay for them with an "absolutely guaranteed certified check" (the respondents words, not mine)  - was a scam.   I replied "sorry, cash only", and haven't heard anything since.     My thought was; since they are kind of Chris Craft Commander specific, I was hoping that a fellow club member could use them.  Will edit the posting with location (Gig Harbor, Washington) and my email address, later today.

Thanks again

I used an identical pair on my 350's and could not be happier.  I too was prepared to go back to original configuration but know I made the right choice after a couple of seasons. Easy to install, take considerable weight off the boat, a quiet throaty sound when accelerating but very quiet at idle or near the marina. It also left more space for access below. The day of installation when smoothly, no modifications required and a one man job.

Hello;   Wow, you had a much easier time than I did.   It took an entire day, with two of us working on it, to remove the old cast iron silencer, and then install the replacement - identical part.   I did install new "steam hose" connecting the outlet of the exhaust "Y" pipe to the inlet of the silencer and a new section of hose between the silencer and the exhaust tube going through the transom.  The old hose was rock-hard while the new was much more flexible.   The fiberglass silencers are about twice as wide as the original cast iron silencers, and round versus rectangular, and would have required extensive modification of the wooden support, under the body of the silencer.  I have no doubt they must sound great, but for me the extent of making the necessary modifications to install was just too much.   FYI have received no replies from either the CCCC or Craig's list for the pair of silencers I have for sale.    Apparently they are very Chris Craft specific and there just isn't much interest.    Oh well.    Thanks for the reply!

I wouldn't say they're Chris Craft specific, they would fit any boat with 3-1/2 inch exhaust. Try ebay. Craigslist doesn't have a big market for parts. 

By the way, you can buy #1000105 for $233 each at mesamarine.com

If my boat had 3-1/2 inch and not 2-1/2 inch exhausts, I'd take them.  Although a 30 inch long muffler would be hard to fit in my little 27.
