    Default new to jet boats. tricks and useful hints

    Morning every1.
    I have just purchased a 3.8 metre 143 scaramouche jetboat by bjet marine.
    It's my 1st jetboat and am wondering if can get some pointers on tricks and how to do them safely once it arrives. also how to flush it properly etc.
    Cheers

    One of the biggest things to be aware of....imo...is the fact that you have little to no steering if you are not in the throttle. Soooooo...if a jet ski popped in front of you....and you let off the gas and turn the boat/wheel......you still gonna be going straight.
