so I put on a droop snoot. Now i'm concerned about clearance trailering. I notice that alot of guys don't run a steering rudder. How does this work out ? I'm still learning alot about these boats. I guess the rudder really only comes into play at the dock? Removing it would fix my towing concern.Thanx

You do not need one and will learn to drive a Jet just fine without one. Good Luck

+1. The rudder isn't needed.
As long as your motor is running, it's not needed. If you lose power at WOT, at least with a rudder you'll have some steering.

But for the most part, everyone is correct, you really don't need it.
