After 2 summers of trying to adjust to jet boats, I'm giving up and going back to stern drive. Changing ceramic washers, cavitation, boost leak, low top end speed and poor gas mileage has done me in. There were some positives like handling, quick up to plane and easy beaching, but they were outweighed by the negatives. Luckily I pretty much got back what I put into it by trading up to a Four Winns 5.0 260hp. Thank you guys for all the good information and help. I'll miss reading the posts. Good luck with those SC's in the future.
