    Having installed 3 of them now, it gets to a routine, I don't even use instructions now lol.

    The difference between 13 brackets and 14 isn't that hard once its in front of you.

    I will second the fact its a very hard install with a Hack Saw.

    I have done mine by myself but I use a saw zaw with a metal blade. On the square tubeing and use table clamps to hold it in place.

    The round shafts that you have to cut and drill, are the hardest. I have a table that can hold them in place while I cut them but its still pretty hard. To drill them I found starting with a small drill bit and stepping it up is the easiest.

    SS is very hard on cutting tools though.

    I use a cutoff wheel to cut slots instead of trying to drill holes in the tubing... Each install gets easier..

    Default Finally got the FAE installed



    Just finished ours today on a Mondo with the help of my father in law and grandpa in law. Haven't had it in the water today since the winds are high, it's been raining and the temps are around 60.

    That's a great tip, wish I would have thought of that. I would also suggest a very sharp set of drill bits or just get the bit they offer on the FAE website.

    MY FAE worked loose on my 2013 LSV. I ended up drilling two screws through the outer hose and into each exhaust outlet to secure the hose to the hull. It's not worked loose since and we ski a lot at 32 mph. I called FAE and they said other LSV's have had similar issues of working loose, the plastic outlet is slick, hard to tighten down with regular clamps. BE CAREFULL or you will see your FAE at the bottom of the lake!!!! My boat is SOOOO quiet now.

    It's not going to sink, it just hangs there from the mounts..

    When mine worked loose from the exhaust outlet, it broke the right mount, so it CAN sink!
