    Check your loader before and after every use! Search this site for the loader thread! I'm not a jet bote girl but don't wanna see anyone get hurt. See loader failures and its not pretty.

    you didn`t mention having a ride plate. if not, maybe theres your answer. how long is your driveshaft meaning how far forward is the engine? does the nozzle have a bushing? post a good picture of the driveshaft, loader and the back of the boat showing the pump. you`ll get plenty of advise.

    Take a pic. of your bowl from the exit side. If it is the older Dominator you can gain some performance by opening the exit some. Alter Ego did it to his and gained some speed. Nice looking boat too!

    This is what Widetrack is talking about. Here is an almost before and after photos of an early style Dominator that I did last week for a customer.
