Did you use the original plastic silencer as a mold for your carbon fiber one? It looks sweet!
The plastic ones don't have enough room between the carby and skid leg, the newer models have an offset motor for more clearance so I made my own. I've built a ton of surf skis, surf and sail boards so shaping one out of foam was no problem, wrapped it with duct tape, waxed and release agent, then laminated it with carbon, epoxy then peel ply and finished with gloss coats.
I added a red intake flange inside the silencer to atomise the fuel better and uni filter. Didn't weigh it but be less than 1/2 a pound after glassing, carbon is so light when done right.
