    Guess I just still need to get used to "jet talk". Problem is another thread was talking about toe-out fins meaning the leading edge of the fins are pointed out (like a vehicle). Anyway guess it will just be a case of deduction by context. However, I'm thinking I maybe don't want a jet boat mechanic doing the alignment on my vehicles or ATVs. :D:D:D:D

    It's absolutely awesome! This is my 2nd season with it and I've enjoyed the boat and watersports so much more since adding it. One of the best mods available for the non E-series boats.

    So @Rod5 If I understand you correctly, you placed a straightedge across the two nozzles and adjusted so the nozzles pointed toward each other with a 1/2" gap on each one. Correct? Would it be possible to dumb it down for me with a picture?

    I’ll look for a pic or two but boat is now at a Marina. Measure the distance between the nozzles. Then adjust the right side in 4 turns inward and the left side in 4 turns inward will give you about a half inch toe in. 8 turns each side is about one inch tow in, but there will be less than half the threads in the right side connector and look like a potential fail point to me. Also the steering stops were nonexistent so the cables flexd terribly when turning all the way either direction at 8 turns. 4 turns still does a tinny bit but seems ok so far. My write up on all this starts at the top of page 3 of this thread more on page 4 or 5.

    I do this all the time, back off on the surf side jet to help minimize the washout of the wake face. I also use a large boat fender clipped between the tie down loop and the ladder to direct the jet wash down.

    @Scuba_ref - I was thinking about trying a fender to clean up the jet wash as well. Any pics of your setup? What size fender? I was thinking about trying a 12x34 with the hole through the middle, assuming it would be easier to adjust its position.
