    Jet Trim Splash Gaurd for the Ultra250

    Installed a used one I had in the garage. It wasn't too bad, but I certainly didn't enjoy it.

    -Stock front rail, has 4 rivets in the middle with plastic washers, and 2 bolts with nuts on each side, under 2 little black pop-out covers.
    -Take off the front rail by drilling the four rivet HEADS off, and taking off the two side screws.
    -Gently lay the front piece to the side.
    -Pull the long-red insert out of the rail from the front, and set aside.
    -Pop out any of the old rivet pieces by pushing them through the rail.
    -Clean up the area, and wax it. Mine already had minor paint damage from the rub rail itself.
    -I drilled the very center of the nose rail, and installed a single rivet to hold the gaurd centered while I worked on each side. I drilled/riveted a couple more on each side, as I worked it around.
    -I chose to mount mine a little higher than normal. No reason you can't mount yours lower or higher.
    -The front rail (or front cap) had to be cut. I took about 3/4" under the front bottom where it was hitting the rubber on the splash gaurd.
    -I popped holes in the splash gaurd where the original holes for the front cover were.
    -I slid the inner rails back in.
    -I then got the two side bolts lined up on each side (no fun) and started working the rail and front cover holes up with the rivets. I used a rivet washer to make the heads bigger instead of the plastic washers.
    -Once it was all together, I popped all the rivets into place, put the bolts back into place (almost too short now) and put the beauty covers over the bolt holes.
    -I haven't tried it yet, and have no idea if it improves the wet ride, but I don't think it could get worse.

    Jet-Trim 60" or "Large" on their website.

    Sorry, I won't have a chance to try it for a week or so. As much water that comes off the sides, I hope it does something to stem the sheet of water over the bow.

    Website.

    Check out the instruction on there for putting it behind the rail. It might be a better way than what I did.

    Getting wet

    I dont see how thats going to stop the sheet of water, its spraying over the nose, not coming from under the ski, still looks good though.

    The "flame" Jet Trim deflector just isn't big enough. It was an improvement, but not enough to recommend it. It may be mounted too high.

    I'd like to try the 60" old-style since the sides come around a little more.
