I have only seen one other boat with this type of steering/jetavator setup.  Is this combo steering/jetavator cable any good, or should i look at going with the normal three cable setup?

What you have there is a Berk JC with a Jetavator.  A Place Diverter is a cleaner/easier piece of equipment.

Good call Crew ! The Jet O Vator , is a decent piece when all there and working right , I like to compare it (the JetO vator) to a Place diverter with the annalogy of a Muzzle loader to and AR 15 The both shoot just one is a smidge more modern and efficiant  Tom

We see them go for "bank" $400 ish on CL and Ebay , do the next guy a "solid" thought give him ALL the pieces (odds and ends) that make it work anything missing will be a nightmare as most everything is obsolete !

ig Guy sorry for the thread "departure"  ;)

If I'm reading right ? the Jet o Vater uses a standard steering cable and the shifter cable parralels it and "hitches" a hookup right at the inner steer tube area at the left upper corner of the transom adaptor It is in reality two seperate cables A standar steer cable and a 43 series cable for the shifter Tom

I've got a complete Jet-O-Vator that I took off my JC pump, if anyone is interested.  Cables, and manual control.

I am looking to switch to a place divertor actually.  It is OK, does not make a rooster tail, but it will keep the bow down.  Maintainance  has consisted of replacing the nylon o rings.
