I have a 03 Mirage 240hp I bought new, the manuals it came with are just about worthless just basic boat info that applies to most every boat. The motor manual wasn't much better in fact mine was for the 175. Any questions just ask here there is a lot of jet boat knowledge on this board [also the Sugar Sand facebook group] Welcome aboard

Thanks for the quick reply. I’m really interested in the control panel and basic engine info.. I would be very appreciative if you have the ability to photocopy the manual. I would more than willing to sent you a money order for time, materials and the cost of shipping just so I could have a copy of my own. BTW, this is my 1st boat of any type.

Search around the SeaDoo forums for those that have the Merc SportJet as the motor service manual will apply to yours. I had our 2003 with 240hp Merc for quite a few years and learned a great deal. But the service manual is what you want.

Most boat manuals are 90% warnings of what not to do, and less of the to do stuff. A service manual for the Mercury Sportjet is where the meat is.

Which Merc did yours come with? That's a start.

Received today. I hope you didn’t send the original. Looks great and already helpful with info about the controls. Sending you a small token of my appreciation.

Glad it helps,guess I never really read it till I was scanning it and realized there is useful general info especially if you are new to jets. How did the maiden outing go?
