Post by newyota »

Sea nymph boat I am looking to buy has a prop and I want to put a jet on it,but I was wondering if the three center ribs would affect performance?

Depends on how big the ribs are. I have a Crestliner mod. V that has a strong center keel and a rib on either side 6" away, never hasd any trouble in the 20+ years I've owned it. Biggest thing is getting the motor mounted at the correct height.
