Default Sea Ray enters the watersports towboat world with SLX-W 230 with joystick piloting



genius.

JPI Joystick
Mercury’s JPI or Joystick Piloting for Inboards remarkably innovative and equally functional. With the shift lever in the neutral position, the joystick becomes self activated and a green LED ring around the base of the joystick provided the verification. We still have regular control with the shift lever, and moving it out of neutral deactivates the joystick again.
Now with the joystick activated we have linked connectivity with the single engine shaft driven inboard propeller and the two electric thrusters. Move the joystick to move the boat in any direction desired, just as we’ve now come to expect from any boat with joystick functionality, only now it’s without pod drives.
The joystick is progressive. The further it is moved, the more power is applied to the main engine. The bow and stern thrusters are single power only, they’re either on or off. But out tests showed that adding power by advancing the stick will provide the kick you’re looking for with just the single engine providing the added power. It works.
Now as is the case with electric thrusters, these will only take so much before they heat up and go into a protected shut down mode to cool off. However, we messed with this feature for well into the better part of 45-minutes with no such effect so this is a non-concern. Normal operations will never come close to that much of a workout.

Probably helps tracking and level the boat depending where the ballast is at on the boat. Trying to keep it from doing the cobalt planing

Good move.

Next is Sea Ray Pontoons.

I feel the market is flooded with toon manufactures but they still sell good.
