I was down at a local mall awhile ago and it was the same time they had a boat show in the mall itself.
I was looking over the boats they had for sale and walked by the seadoo type jetboats. The salesmen was talking to some guy about this and that, and I mumbled under my breath, "Good luck running that in our lake with the weeds"
The salesmen responded to my comment by saying, " No, thats not a problem. Look at this. Here is a lever to pull in the event you clog the pump." He showed me how it works. Its like a stock intake grate and another set of fins coming down through the grate pushing the weeds out.
Is there something like this possible for our style jets?
Even with a setback pump, it still means leaning over the back and digging around in the pump. But on my Challenger, it means I'm going swimming to clean it out only for it to clog up again in about 30 minutes.
I know all you guys out west don't have this problem, but on the east coast, its a nightmare! Everyone I talked to about it said f*ck the jet, get a *-drive..
I don't want to though!
