Is this included with a single engine as well?Hey guys and gals, we are preparing to ship product and before we do we wanted to get as much new info to you as we could. You really can't imagine all the work that is going on right now to ensure that everything ships on time and with quality. We're producing new video content to update you on new advancements that have been ongoing and that will make it into kits preparing to ship on the 21st(keep your fingers crossed on that date).
This is the first of several videos that we are debuting today. Its a new breakthrough in the Thrust Vector Wake product which was discovered only weeks ago. It is giving us incredible results and the gorgeous wave that you've been seeing in all our twin engine videos has been, in part, created with the help of this breakthrough component! We're calling it JetWash Deflector. Here is a video introduction to the JetWash Deflector.
No not required to get the same results. The single engine's jet wash is located in the center of the hull which by nature provides deflection of the upswell of water coming from beneath the boat (the culprit for much of the spray observed on the surf side of a surf wave).Is this included with a single engine as well?
Will,No not required to get the same results. The single engine's jet wash is located in the center of the hull which by nature provides deflection of the upswell of water coming from beneath the boat (the culprit for much of the spray observed on the surf side of a surf wave).
I likely failed to make this clear, this product is only necessary on the twin engine kits. The single engine kits will not feature this device as it is not necessary.Will,
The 2018 and older 19’s have the ladder on the left side. Which is the normal surf side, when listing the boat might this product be beneficial to keep the wave clean. If the ladder is in the water?
Sorry one more question. Is the idea that you take the deflector on and off when you surf or can you cruise with it attached?Not sure how far back you're referring to, but the answer I think you're looking for is no. This product is only a few weeks old. We've been using it since this video was produced:
Yes just distribute them in compartments. They're small and take up little room.If you are out for the day and doing other than surfing, do you just distribute the steel shot bags throughout the boat?
Interestedly enough I'm going home every day at 5 o'clock...... Well 5 o'clock ish...lolWow Will, do your wife and kids even recognize your face anymore? Seems you been doing a lot this last couple months. I hope you can go back to raising a family after this product is off the launch pad.
Thanks for producing the videos. They answer a lot of questions.
I honestly did not think that I could ask people to pay more money when we promised to give them a clean perfect surf wave with what they already agreed to purchase.Will, quite a generous gesture throwing in the JetWash Deflector with a Twin jet order-nice touch.
WOW! Outstanding Customer Friendly Company!We've shown you the new JetWash Deflector, now we'll show you how to install it. This new advancement was created to work in concert with the Thrust Vector Wake. It does a great job of assisting the Thrust Vector Wake to produce a super clean laminar surf wave behind a twin engine Yamaha Jet Boat.
Several have asked if the JetWash Deflector can be added to other systems such as Thrust Vector X or XV or XL. The short answer is no. It is only a piece of the Thrust Vector Wake puzzle that does not accomplish the fullness of what you're seeing in the Thrust Vector Wake videos posted lately. The JetWash Deflector comes with the Thrust Vector Wake as an integral part of the complete system.
No we've been testing as though we're using the most common setup out there which is no factory bags at all and then adding our ballast system to the boat to show how easy it can be to get a great wave without having to run all that plumbing and take up all that valuable real estate.@JetBoatPilot Will, you’re using an X boat to test, but not using any of the built in ballast, right? Could a partial fill of the center bag take the place of your shot in the bow?
I understand the importance of getting the weight as far back as possible. But, what effect does using your rear bags have before (or after) you add the shot?
Would it be possible to get a video using standard X ballast? And, then show your recommended setup? Also, how do you expect the wake to be different when tested on a 24’?
