Surfpointe page 6 jet boaters community forum gas jet compressor

F Y I Aiming a single nozzle off center on a Cable operated jet does create some obstacles , First the jet stream exiting the nozzle is constantly trying to bring the nozzle back to center . If you ever drove a p w c and broke a steering cable you learn this immediately. With 2 nozzles and one being out of true there will be a constant battle between the 2. One engine pushing slightly harder than the other will win the battle. so the angles will not remain constant , making the cables have tension between them and removing all the play from the nozzles, " go out and grab a steering nozzle and see for yourself how it has a lot of play . My Magnum A k system uses a second tie rod to remove the slop or play in the nozzles of the Ak boats. With this setup you could maintain a constant tow on one nozzle however I seriously doubt that the surf point idea is really a viable option for wake surfing more of a marketing idea. I personally do not wake surf but I would think it would make it more difficult to learn if this is how you proceed sort of learning to ski on some 1 by 6 boards tied to your feet with rope. I would also suspect the steering in forward would be effected I use my tie rod setup to place a small tow in on both nozzles to provide a better high speed tracking since my Magnum A K steering works at all speeds .

I always get confused when people are talking toe-in on the jets. If you think of it as the same as toe-in on a car then that would mean the front side of the jets are toe-in causing the jet output to be angled out. However, I imagine we are talking about angling the jet output in towards each other which would mean that the back of the jets are toe-in (opposite of a vehicle toe-in setup). Technically I think when angling the jet output towards each other this would be a toe-out configuration (meaning the front of the jets are toe-out and the back of the jets are pointing at each other). Anyway unless someone corrects me I’m assuming we are angling the jets toward each other in a toe-out configuration (seems that only makes sense here). Not trying to be and anal dork about it, just been confusing for me cause I’ve seen differing toe-in/out terminology used on this forum for things like jets and fins. I suppose some of the confusion may be because toe-in/out maybe isn’t even the right terminology to use in the case of jet nozzle angle?? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ On the other hand maybe I’m an idiot and nobody else is having this issue.
