    Default How bad is this?

    My jet is missing about 90% of one fin and a chunk taken out of the other. Any suggestions on fixing this?

    What the hell are you doing, drifting you're boat or parking ON THE BEACH. If that is all you see wrong with the intake installation then smooth them and run it M

    LOL! I bought the boat a few weeks ago and this is how it looked when I got it. I was debating on grinding them down and making them smooth, but that seems like a recipe for disaster.

    I think I'm gonna have to bite the bullet and get a new one

    Grind them down and then install a drop in turn fin like the circle boat guys use.
