Great product and better service

If you are here looking at this product, chances are you haven’t seen the videos. These direct water when the bucket is down on your jet nozzle. Makes reverse maneuvering a breeze. If you are used to doing this without lateral thrusters you will find there is a learning curve, but I’m talking 1-3 maneuvers and you’re a pro. At this point you look like you actually know how to drive a jet boat backwards lol. But seriously they make you look like a pro.

The best part however is the amazing customer service I received from this company. I had a special request with my order due to some weird circumstances. Anyhow when package arrived it had all been handled. However there was a mix up and JBP thought my request had not been filled properly. I got an email the very day I received my package to remedy the situation.
This sort of concern for meeting customers needs is what separates great companies from someone just trying to make a buck. I will definitely bring all my business here in the future.
Way to be awesome JBP! Thanks.

Thank you so much for the 5 Stars! It means alot to us but is even better for the potential buyer who is making a decision.

Something to consider

Installed lateral thrusters and thruster 2.0 kit. Love the handling, crazy the difference it makes. However, the set up makes you more vulnerable to getting tangled up in the weeds. Makes sense though, instead of one huge port you now have 3 smaller ones and debree (weeds and gravel) can get caught a bit easier. Had a scary one where the intake totally got wrapped up in weeds and when I tried to clear by dumping reverse, got some gravel pebbles pinching the reverse flap shut. Made the mistake of cutting off power to clear the weedsand couldn’t move throttle lever back to neutral. So I was literally dead in the water. Just a lesson learned I guess. Overall, great product, it does what it says it will, just having it in creates other issues. As they say, every solution creates a new problem…

Great product from a Great company

Removed the thruster Vector X and installed the complete kit Thrust Vector L and the Lateral Thrusters. First time out and it was actually easy to ease my boat to the dock using the lateral thruster. Before installing the lateral thruster it was always difficult to get the stern into the dock. Glad I spent the dollars to update. The boat handles so much better, especially in tight quarters... You really can pivot your boat in the same area as the lenght of your boat..... Thanks again for manufacturing a quality product that actually works as advertised..

A Must Buy

A very simple part with a very big impact on performance. I've always driven jets, but the reverse on my FSH 252 felt useless. Install was very quick and the low-speed control in reverse exists now! Well worth the purchase.

I have been using the Lateral Thruster 2.0 now for over 3 months and must give it an A++. For a jet boat this is a game changer. Maneuvering in and out of my slip has never been easier no matter what the weather conditions are. To be able to remain in one location while turning your boat is extremely effective when in a tight location. No more embarrassing moments when pulling up to a dock for fuel or dinner. Job well done JetBoat Pilot, thank you.
