Hi-New to jet boats,bought my G3 1860 90/65 1 year ago. Ever since i bought it it has a slight pull to the right.I had all prop boats before so they have an offset on the lower unit. I was told maybe a rail or rib was bent under the hull. Just curious of the cause.Its going in to Lakeside soon to have a uhmw foot installed.I will have them look it over and see whats up. Thanks!

If you go on outboard jets site they have a write up on how to fix this. Basically you tweak the nozzle just slightly. I also have a 90/65 yamaha but mine is a tiller, i've wanted to tweak mine but have held off because the pull isn't that bad and I'm afraid it could somehow make it less efficient. If you do it please share any before and after speed changes.

The pull is just the torque of the internals of the motor spinning all in one direction, most likely not a hull issue unless yours is just beat to hell.
