Jet Drive

As a matter interest(and have read all that monster thread on jets).
Can a jet unit be adjusted so as to trim the bow down.Not the type fitted to jet skis that have trim avail.

They use trim tabs, but have only seen them used on the big boats.

Some of the PP Jets (PP65) from Vosper Thornycroft have an extra control which operates a cone in the vertical plane in addition to the horizontal direction, however they are quite rare.
