    First off we are not happy about this. I'm pretty sure it was headed over if not by the Grace of God.

    Not just unloading the pump. My silver tongue friend bill Farmer braved the cold to be the chase boat.

    Got him on the trailer and put another 1 degree of down in it and sent him back out. We had not seen the video yet. I was standing right there when the boat lifted on him. The boat was acting fine and all we had changed was added a shim to the shoe. Was expecting maybe to blow the tail not for the entire boat to fly.

    This run much better. And that is the moon rising in the background. 1 minute 20 sec of nothing might as well scroll fwd.

    Holy Crap! Thankgod it all worked out. How can you fix that kind of stuff with a Jet? Those round shim deals that go on after the bowl & before the nozzle?

    Jet a vator has a fixed adjustment. Couple of wrenches and a digital inclinometer. About a 1 minute deal.

    Damn, that looks quick.
    It's usually hard to make an impressive video from that distance but you did it there.

    Dillons got some quick reactions to save it like that.

    Looks very quick!

    I'm sure you'll keep working on the balancing act to keep the boat/pump in the water.

    Make sure the loader is in good condition at all times!......Slide under there and check it alot.
