    Just purchased a new G3 1656ccj with 60/40 yamaha. The manual says that the leading edge of the jet intake should be even with the bottom of the boat. However, the intake is mounted about 4 inches below the bottom of the boat. Anyone have any knowledge in this issue?

    The installation you have creates a lot of extra drag and should be corrected in accordance with the manual!
