    Default Newbie couple questions

    Hi guys, Well I decided to get a jet boat and being my first one I think I made a good choice in getting a Taylor 20 BR. I was wondering if I could get some help on acouple parts that are new on the boat. Not sure what they do or suppose to do. Here goes: New load and ride plate and a FTN HYD. place diverter. Any info on what, why, and how would be appreciated. Thanks Dewey

That's like the 20th time he's gone by today?"

    Hey Dewey,
    Looks like you got hooked up back in the neighborhood. Good luck with the new boat, and make some memories with your son.

    I gave him a down payment. Looks to be a very nice boat to get into this sport. Can't wait. Dewey

    To answer your question, the loader is like a "ramp" inside of the intake that bolts in place of the traditional rock grate that usually comes stock on all jet boats. Its purpose is to help load the top of the impeller by ramping water up to the top of the intake as the boat moves through the water. Loads the pump harder, which greatly increases acceleration.

    The ride plate is a plate that extends from the bottom of the intake out to the end of the bowl on the pump. Its purpose is to basically make the boat think it's longer and give it a surface to "lean back" on when it's aired out and riding on the keel. The front part of the plate is attatched to the shoe, which is an add on piece on the back end of the intake that acts like a "scoop" of sorts to help keep the pump loaded when it's aired out on the keel.

    The diverter is the nozzle itself. As well as moving side to side for steering, it also moves up and down to give you on the fly control of the trim. This particular one is hydraulically actuated, versus having a manual one that is controlled by way of a handle and a cable. The FTN part I believe allows you to run different size FTN inserts in the nozzle, which gives basically another tuning option.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks. My first solid answer to my first question. I dont have the boat yet to see this stuff, but this is a big help to the starting of the learning curve. Dewey

    If the loader bolts in place where the rock grate use to be will that allow more the chance of rocks getting in, or is it like a combo piece. Thanks Dewey

    You would think so, but me personally I've never sucked anything through a pump. If you get under a boat that has a loader, you'll see just how much space they take up in the intake, so in some cases I think they actually make it harder for things to get in there. Plus, the rock grate's grating is spaced so far apart I really don't think they keep much of anything out of the pump, but that's just my $0.02.

    A friend of mine used to own a jet boat and run it at the delta a lot, and he used to get shit sucked into the pump all the time. However, once he put a loader in he never had that issue again.
