    Craig Warners Ski

    I was just looking at the latest edition of a jetski mag and noticed Craig Warners ' s 15F/Ultra 250 ski from Havasu on the cover has 3 levers on the bars. I know 1 is throttle, 1 is trim tabs but whats the other?

    It drops the nozzle down in the water to help with cornering at higher speeds and helps getting off the corner as well.. from what i have read anyway. can't see where it would help with getting off the corners ... my thinking would be triming the nozzle up when your closed course racing... but thats my opinion

    Would this have any benefit on a mostly stock ski used for recreational riding?

    Dropping the nose when cornering improves heaps
    Nose higher aids in speed but exposes more of the flatter section of the hull, less V of the hull in the water makes it turn slower/ not a sharp

    Thats the way I try to explain it,
    Basicly it give you more traction to the front to direct you in the turns

    No benifit to a rec ski...really a CC thing only

    The Trim tabs in that set up are more for a breaking effect, then dump the nozzle before the turn and throttle all the way though and let it out after exiting the corner.

    The trim tab thing could also be used for starts as with the the 330+ HP is could make the thing hop out of the water and giving a bad start.

    You really dont want a nozzle to come up in a CC race as this could just induce porpoiseing. You want a race boat to ride pretty flat and stay hooked up.
