    Hello all, just got a new Chapparal 242 VRX.
    My boat pulls to the right a littlle bit. If I allowed it to, it would make a huge right turn. I've tried moving weight around in the boat with no luck so I'm thinking the jet vector is off. I'm far enough from the dealer I would prefer to fix it myself. Has anyone else had this issue and how did you adjust the jet vector?thanks

    I was asked if mine pulled when it was in for repairs, appears to be common but I was not told how to fix it.

    Sorry

    on the twins, you can put a a level, or other flat surface across both jets to verify they are aligned. You can also adjust the steering cable, but with these boats it's common to have some pull one way or the other, and to have the wheel turned some to maintain a straight course. Yamaha has added a keel and rudder, maybe the BRP powered boats will follow their lead.
