Can anyone help with the problem of the rider pulling a jet drive. It totally makes sense that the rider pulls the boat because there is nothing in the water. I'm just wondering if anyone has had luck fixing this problem. Thanks

Christopher,
The prob with most jets is the lack of running gear in the water when the boat is on plane. You can try to install skaggs similar to what is on most inboard boats, but this will drastically change how the boat handles in a turn. The point the rope is attached to the boat has a big effect on how the boat reacts to pull. An end mounted rope will tend to rotate the boat, causing the boat to change direction of travel. A center mounted rope will tend cause the boat to lean thus reducing the need for those annoying steering corrections. Try playing with the rope first. I hope this helps.
