Water Jets Tips.
 
At slow speed water jets tend to wander, this can be corrected by
lowering the bucket and increasing revs ; but not speed.
Or you can try as we did with our Ocean Dynamic and other smaller ribs.
by fitting a skeg similar to that used on a surf board.(even use a old one )

Turning 360 degrees in your own lengh. Put the steering wheel hard over
either way , keep steady low revs ,and juggle your bucket from neutral
up and down. This is because jet turn in the same direction in forward
and reverse.

On larger jets we advise a 1:1 gearbox, Enables better control in
Marina and tight spots without having to stop the engine. Also although
reverse gear does not give reverse motion. It enables you to back flush
plastic bags , weed ect.

Fascinating…just one small question? Are you talking to someone I can’t see…or is it just random posting?

Well I think the word "tips" tends to give the game away..........

Just shown that to a couple of crew here who have been driving (big) water jets for years.

Reaction - laughter and much use of the word "knob" lol...

"We advise"... just who does this joker think he is?

Why are you insulting this gentleman? He provides some interesting information on jets and you post a useless comment designed to upset.

If you don't agree with his tips, why don't you say so and post your own views in a constructive manner?
