Hello all
I'm looking at an 05 20' weldcraft renegade. Just went for a test run on a lake and the water was glass. When the boat is on plane it seems to wobble or sway from side to side. Being new to jets is this normal? The boat just had a new impeller installed and the steering seems tight and responsive. The boat had 211hrs on it and is very clean. Not so much as a scratch on the hill. Any advice would be great.

That is probably normal , most people tend to oversteer a jet. Try letting go of the wheel and see if it stops wandering.

When i got my boat the first few drives were like that. Definitely me oversteering it, after i got use to it it went away. I would put more time into driving it. :Drink:
