I like the roar and throaty noise when flushing at home on the drive, that's part of the fun of having a rib, why muffle it, sod the neighbours....

I'm with you, I like my neighbours to know I'm home after a day on the water!

I viewed the video on their site and the sound difference was marginal at least. I might look for a wide rubber or plastic bucket and run the outboard in. I'm planning to use Salt Away before it's stored for the season.

Not exactly what I would describe as 'Silent Washer', not a huge reduction in sound.
Much the same result - albeit I don't engage drive - when using muffs on mine by putting an old bath towel or bucket over the prop.
