Introduction
Waterjets have rapidly gained acceptance as the leading means of propulsion for all types of high speed
marine craft including ferries, work boats, patrol craft and pleasure boats.
Recent advances in waterjet technology have put them ahead of conventional propeller systems in both high
speed performance and reliability.
Conventional propeller powered craft have several shortcomings, such as vibration, higher engine loading
and susceptibility to damage from water borne debris.
Modern waterjet powered vessels offer many advantages:
 High efficiency.
 Rapid acceleration.
 Shallow draft.
 Manoeuvrability.
 Smooth, quiet operation.
 Lower maintenance.
 Longer engine life.
 Simplified installation.
 No protrusions under the water.
 Safety for personal working in the water near the vessel.
The waterjet unit is an ideal form of propulsion for vessels working in a marine mammal environment.
HamiltonJet pioneered the commercial development of the modern waterjet system in the early 1950’s and
today we have over 30,000 units in service worldwide.

2-1
Product Description HJ292 Product Manual

Figure 1: Hamilton Quinnant Jet, Circa 1953

With a complete range of models suitable for power inputs of up to 10000kW per unit, the Hamilton waterjet
is ideally suited to the efficient propulsion of a wide variety of high speed vessels, in either single or multiple
jet configurations.
HamiltonJet is dedicated to the production of the highest quality waterjets and controls systems designed
and manufactured to meet the requirements of the world's leading certifying authorities.
The global HamiltonJet organisation provides full support through factory support staff, regional offices and
an extensive network of factory trained distributors in over 50 locations worldwide.

Equipment description
The HamiltonJet HJ series is a range of highly efficient single stage waterjets suitable for propelling craft
typically up to 20metres in length and 30tonnes displacement, at speeds up to 50knots. Generally, high
speed diesel engines drive HJ series waterjets directly.
The HamiltonJet HM & HT series are larger single stage waterjets suitable for vessels typically up to 65m in
length. Generally, high speed diesel engines drive HM & HT series waterjets via a reduction gearbox.
Mounted partly inboard at the stern of the vessel, the HamiltonJet waterjet consists of a totally integrated,
jet mounted hydraulic steering, reverse and control system package.
The waterjet draws water through an intake screen at the base of the intake. The intake screen mounts flush
with the hull bottom.
The pumping unit (impeller + stator) increases the pressure or "head" of the flow, which is then discharged
at high velocity at the nozzle. The reaction to this high velocity jet stream provides the net thrust force,
which fully transmits through the intake to the hull bottom.
A single piece balanced steering nozzle precisely directs the jet stream as commanded by the helm, providing
high turning forces to either port or starboard. An independent split-duct type reverse duct, directs the jet
stream back underneath the hull to provide powerful astern thrust.
The reverse duct can be set to a "zero speed" position (where the ahead and astern thrusts are balanced) at
which point full steering is still available.
Selecting infinitely variable forward and reverse control by varying the position of the reverse duct combined
with the highly efficient steering results in unparalleled vessel control and manoeuvrability.

HJ292 Product Manual Product Description

Main components
Intake block
The Intake block forms the inlet for the jet unit. It is either moulded, welded or bolted (depending on hull
material) into an opening in the hull bottom.

Intake
Cast from high silicon aluminium alloy, the intake bolts to the intake block and represents the main structural
body of the jet unit. The intake is capable of transmitting the full thrust of the jet unit to the hull bottom.

Oil cooler
The jet unit is fitted with an integrated oil cooler cast into the side of the intake. This connects to the jet
mounted hydraulic power unit (JHPU) via hoses.

Thrust bearing
Mounted inside the bearing housing, the thrust bearing absorbs the thrust generated by the impeller.
No external thrust bearing is required.

Water seal
The water seal Mounts on the mainshaft aft of the bearing housing and stops water entering the bearing
housing or the vessel.

Coupling and driveshaft


The coupling is mounted on the mainshaft forward of the bearing housing.
A variety of couplings are available to suit different driveshaft flanges.
The driveshaft to the waterjet connection must have axial and radial flexibility.

Impeller
The impeller is a mixed flow type, capable of pumping large volumes of water at relatively low pressures. It
provides high propulsive coefficients at fast vessel speeds. The cast stainless steel impeller runs within a
replaceable stainless steel wear ring located in the rear section of the intake.

Tailpipe
The tailpipe contains a water lubricated bearing supporting the rear of the mainshaft.
The tailpipe contains a vaned stator to remove the rotation of the water flow, allowing a uniform axial flow
to the nozzle.

Steering nozzle
After the water flow passes through the impeller and stator, it is at a high pressure and relatively low
velocity.
Water flow at the nozzle outlet is at atmospheric pressure. This difference in flow pressure converts to flow
velocity in the nozzle.
Correct nozzle sizing is critical to the correct operation of the jet unit.

Steering assembly
Attached to the rear of the tailpipe, the steering assembly consists of a nozzle housing, nozzle insert and
steering nozzle.
The steering nozzle mounts inside the nozzle housing on vertical pivot pins and rotates to port or starboard
by linkages attached to an inboard steering tiller.
The nozzle insert ensures that the flow exiting the stator section reaches the final steering nozzle outlet
without any disturbance by the steering mechanism, thus maximising steering efficiency.

Product Description HJ292 Product Manual

Reverse duct
Can be positioned up or down by the reverse cylinder.
Incorporated into the reverse duct is a splitter which divides and angles the astern jet stream downwards
and to the sides, clearing the transom and intake opening.
This stops recycling of water flow through the jet unit (which may be aerated or contain sediment) and
excessive disturbance to the bottom of the waterway.

Transom seal
Seals the hole in the transom through which the waterjet passes. The transom seal bolts to the vessel
transom and incorporates a rubber ring which seals around the jet unit.

Screen rake
Available as an optional extra, the dry run system is typically used for man-overboard boats and lifeboats
where the engines need to be started before the vessel is in the water.
The dry run kit consists of a special marine bearing that can operate out of the water for short periods of
time. Standard rubber marine bearings must always be operated wet.

Dry run kit (optional extra)


Available as on optional extra, the jet unit can be fitted with a dry run kit.
The dry run system is typically used for man-overboard boats and lifeboats where the engines need to be
started before the vessel is in the water.
The dry run kit consists of a special marine bearing which can operate out of the water for short periods of
time. Standard rubber marine bearings must not operate dry.

Overflow preventer/hatch extension (optional extra)


The overflow preventer or hatch extension, is an optional extra for use with jet units where the water level
(when the vessel is fully laden) is above the normal level of the main inspection cover.
The overflow preventer attaches to the top of the intake around the outside of the main inspection cover.

Propulsion system design


Jet unit selection
Jet unit selection is a complex task. Consult HamiltonJet for advice in all cases.

Hull loads
All loads produced by the jet unit result from the difference in momentum of the incoming and outgoing
water. An exception is the torque load on the Stator Vanes as they remove the angular momentum of the
waterjet which was input by the impeller.
The following four cases must be considered when calculating maximum loads:
 Full ahead.
 Full reverse.
 Full steering.
 Full reverse & full steering.
While the jet unit loads can be readily calculated, the hull reaction loads are dependent on the stiffness and
rigidity of both the jet unit and the hull structure.
All loads are transferred to the hull via the intake block. No significant loads are taken by the transom.
The following figure and tables give all relevant data for this jet unit.

Hull design
Not all hull shapes are suitable for propulsion by waterjet. Contact HamiltonJet for guidelines
on suitable hull shapes, performance and engine matching.

Mono hulled vessel


Aerated water generated by the vessel’s bow wave must not pass directly aft to the jet unit intake(s).
 A vee'd bow stem in conjunction with 10 degree minimum deadrise angle is recommended.
 Mount multiple jet units as close to the keel line as possible (staggering the engines can allow closer
centres).
 Planing strakes, keelsons, plank keels and any other hull appendages that may create turbulent water
flow into the jet unit(s) must not be fitted in front of or adjacent to the jet unit intakes. Refer to figure:
Mono hull design (► page 3-4).
For directional stability at speeds over 30knots, use monohedron (constant deadrise) hulls without
appendages.
Displacement speed and warped plane (reducing deadrise going aft) hulls may need additional directional
stability. Twin bilge keels are normally sufficient as these do not increase draft or interfere with water flow
into the jet intake.
The jet unit must be immersed with the water line at least up to the underside of the mainshaft (at the
impeller) in order to prime the jet unit when the engine is started..
For applications using multiple jet units, contact HamiltonJet for jet unit spacing details.

Multi hulled vessels


It is possible to fit Jet units in catamaran and some trimaran hulls.
These types of vessels can trap air between the hulls. Make sure that this trapped air does not enter the jet
unit intake(s).
To avoid this, make sure the hulls are deep in relation to the air tunnels so that the jet units sit well down in
the water.
When in the ahead (up) position, the reverse duct must not project beyond the sidewalls of a catamaran or
trimaran hull. This can cause substantial drag.
In all cases when using jet units with these types of hulls, consult HamiltonJet.

Figure 5: Multi hull design

Trim tabs
Find more information here (► page 4-4) regarding the fitting of trim tabs.

When moving astern, trim tabs mounted alongside the jet unit, will interfere with the reverse jetstream
reducing thrust. Therefore do not mount trim tabs beside the jet unit.
Mount trim tabs under the jet unit with any control equipment mounted on either side of the jet unit.
The following diagram shows the maximum size and position of the trim tab that may be located under the
jet unit.
Contact HamiltonJet if further information is required.

Drive lines
Loads on jet unit thrust bearing
The thrust bearing carries thrust loads from the jet unit to propel the craft. It should not be
subjected to excessive loads from other sources as described below:
 The thrust bearing will not withstand excessive radial loads caused by adapters and belt
pulleys overhanging the jet coupling flange.
 The thrust bearing will not withstand excessive loads produced by rigid drivelines which
do not accommodate misalignment resulting from engine movement or hull flexing.
 The driveline must not impose any axial force in the aft direction. On installation there
should be a small gap between the waterjet and driveline coupling that closes when
tightening the bolts.
 There is a limit to the driveshaft weight that the jet unit can support.

Requirements of the driveline


The driveline:
 Must allow for parallel and angular misalignment.
 Must allow for axial movement due to bearing end float, heat expansion, and hull flexing.
 Must not exceed the allowable weight at the jet coupling. (Affected by critical speed calculation)
 Must have at least one torsionally flexible element of sufficiently low stiffness to prevent resonance
within the operating speed range.
 Does not have to transmit thrust loads as the jet unit absorbs these.
 Must transmit the torque to the Jet Unit with an acceptable life expectancy.

Always do a torsional vibration analysis on the complete drive train. The vibratory torque should not exceed
10% of the nominal torque for most applications. The resultant torque must always be in the same direction
and carefully checked at engine idle speed.

Engineering checks
Consult all component suppliers (including driveline, engine and jet suppliers) with full driveline details to
ensure suitability and compatibility of components.
Checks must include:
 Critical speed check for whirling of the jet unit mainshaft: Consult HamiltonJet.
 Critical speed check for whirling of the driveshaft: Consult driveline supplier.
 Engine to jet alignment: Consult HamiltonJet and driveline supplier.
 Torsional vibration analysis: Consult engine or torsionally flexible coupling supplier.

Critical speed checks should allow safe operation up to the engine's no load governor setting
(or high idle).

Driveline options
The above diagram shows the different types of driveline components and their uses. Note that this diagram
is a guide only.
Always contact HamiltonJet before designing the driveline.

Misalignment absorbing coupling


The following types of misalignment absorbing couplings may be used:

Universal driveshafts
These are double universal slip-jointed driveshafts, also called Cardan shafts. They bolt directly to the jet unit
coupling.
Lengths range from approximately 900mm to 3,000mm. The maximum allowable weight at the jet unit
coupling and the critical speed of the mainshaft will limit the length of the driveshaft.

Double element torsionally flexible coupling


Use a double element torsionally flexible driveshaft with support bearings as illustrated below.
The engine is located in line with the jet unit. This type of coupling allows the engine to be flexibly mounted.
Length is from approximately 200mm (8") upwards. The maximum allowable weight at the jet unit coupling
will limit the length of the driveshaft.
Examples of these couplings are Centaflex and Mega flex.

Torsionally flexible couplings (TFC)


The torsional vibration analysis will determine the quantity and position of torsionally flexible couplings. Fit
at least one TFC either:
 Between the engine and the gearbox.
 Immediately between the gearbox and any shafting leading to the jet unit.
Gear coupling
The coupling consists of two steel hubs with crowned teeth that engage in a flanged sleeve with internal
straight parallel teeth. As a result of the teeth curvature, the hubs can oscillate in the flanged sleeve if shaft
misalignment occurs.
The double jointed coupling compensates for angular misalignment and radial offset while also allowing axial
end float. It is torsionally rigid.

Follow the manufacturer's recommendations regarding installation and alignment.

A double jointed coupling is required.

Double element, non torsionally flexible couplings


These are a metal disc or diaphragm type couplings and allow for a small angular misalignment and radial
offset as well as axial movement, but are torsionally rigid.
Examples are Centadisc and Metaflex

Long drive shafts


Where the distance between the gearbox flange and the coupling flange exceeds the acceptable length
possible with a Cardan shaft or a double element flexible coupling assembly, then:
 HamiltonJet recommends the use a fixed lineshaft supported on pedestal bearings.
 Use a short Cardan shaft or double element flexible coupling assembly for connection to the jet unit.

If a TFC is not required between the gearbox and the lineshaft, then directly attach the
lineshaft to the gearbox flange using normal propeller shafting criteria.
Mount the gearbox rigidly to avoid misalignment.

3-9
Design Basics HJ292 Product Manual

Universal driveshaft alignment


There are only two possible centreline locations for jet unit and gearbox.
 'W' configuration
 'Z' configuration
Assemble universal driveshafts with the yokes (forks) in the same plane.
Install the heavier splined end of the driveshaft at the gearbox end of the driveline.
Correct running length of the shaft is with the shaft extended to half the total spline extension length.
When the TFC couples directly to a universal driveshaft, the TFC must provide a bearing to support the
universal driveshaft.
When the TFC couples directly to a lineshaft supported on bearings, a support bearing is not required.

It is very important to position the engine so that the universal joints of the driveshaft have
equal offset angles.
Refer to the driveshaft manufacturers recommendations for joint angles (typical range is
between 1.5 and 5degrees).

Figure 9: 'W' configuration driveshaft


1 Jet coupling flange 3 Jet mainshaft axis
2 Engine / gearbox flange

θ1 and θ2 must be equal


If X1 = X2 and both input and output axis meet at point P, then θ1 = θ2

The best method of alignment is to mount pointers on the jet coupling (or output) flange and the engine (or
input) flange. The length of each pointer should be exactly the same and equal to half the nominal distance
between the two flanges.

Moments of inertia
Carry out a torsional vibration analysis for the complete driveline including engine flexible coupling, gearbox,
driveshaft and jet rotational assembly, especially where a universal driveshaft does not utilise a torsionally
resilient member or gearbox.
It is the boat builder’s responsibility to make sure that either the engine manufacturer or the flexible
coupling manufacturer performs a vibration analysis on the driveline.
To allow for a torsional vibration analysis, HamiltonJet provides the following moments of inertia data for the

Jet mainshaft alignment


If the jet unit mainshaft is inclined at an angle of 5° to the intake block base and the port and starboard jets
mount at the hull deadrise angle, then the jet mainshafts are no longer parallel to the keel line in plan.

Figure 13: Water offtake pressure / flow

The jet unit is fitted with a water offtake which may be used as a supplementary water supply (e.g. for deck
wash) or engine cooling.
The water offtake is fitted with a 1¼" BSP plug [A].
Fit the supplied 1¼" hose tail [B] to the water offtake to
allow for the connection of a hose.

If used as part of the engine cooling circuit, the designer / builder must satisfy themselves
that the available flow is sufficient for the cooling requirements.

Do not feed the water directly to the engine without a raw water pump unless:
 The pressure from the water offtake at idle is sufficient to cool the engine.
and
 The engine can withstand the full pressure from the jet offtake.

3-14
HJ292 Product Manual Design Basics

To be sure of correct water flow for engine cooling, use a conventional water pick-up and engine raw water
pump.
It is possible to use the jet water offtake for a deck cleaning hose but the pressure is not high enough to be
used for a fire hose.

If the engine is fitted with a gearbox or clutch, do not use the jet water offtake for engine cooling
since the jet water offtake will provide no water when the jet unit is disengaged.
Make sure that the engine cooling water pick up is not directly ahead of the jet unit intake, but well
to the side to avoid turbulent water flow into the jet unit.

Engine location and mounting


General
Position the engines to give the craft the most suitable fore and aft trim for the proposed boat speed.
For semi-planing and moderate planing speed craft, position the engine(s) well forward towards amidships
for best trim and speed.
For very high speed vessels the position the engine(s) aft, close to the jet unit, to obtain best trim and speed.
Contact your local HamiltonJet distributor for advice or follow the boat designer's recommendations.

Engine shaft rotation


Shaft rotation is defined as clockwise or anti-clockwise (clockwise or counter clockwise) when viewing the
shaft from the waterjet looking forward in the vessel towards the engine, as shown in the following figure.
Shaft rotation is reversed when the waterjet is back flushing.

2: Engine
A: Clockwise engine shaft rotation
B: Anti-clockwise engine shaft rotation

Drive shaft rotation must be anti-clockwise for HJ292


waterjets.

Design Basics HJ292 Product Manual

Engine mounting
Mount the engine via mounting feet fixed to the engine bearers.
The feet and bearers do not have to withstand the propulsion thrust load as this directly transmits from the
jet unit directly to the hull.
Flexible engine mounts reduce vibration and noise. Use these in conjunction with a driveshaft system which
does not cause a radial or side load at the jet coupling as the engine moves.

For steel hulls


Make sure the driveline electrically isolates the engine from the jet unit.

Engine systems
Follow the manufacturer's recommendations for engine wiring, instrumentation and throttle systems.

For steel hulls


With steel hull vessels, make sure that the controls do not electrically connect the jet unit to the vessel hull.

Exhaust systems
Engine exhausts should not be located below the waterline near the jet units.
Locate the engine exhausts above the waterline.
Water containing exhaust gasses can enter the jet unit when moving astern causing loss of thrust and
control.
The exhaust system can be any conventional system approved by the engine manufacturer.

HJ292 Product Manual Design Basics

Governor settings
The no load governor setting (or high idle) on diesel engines, should be set well clear of the full throttle RPM
achieved when driving the jet unit so that there is no chance of the governor reducing power (and
performance) at full throttle.
To check, select neutral and open the throttle fully. Use a calibrated hand tachometer to measure the RPM.
If there is no gearbox fitted, then disconnect the driveline at the engine flywheel and check RPM.
Example:
 If the maximum RPM for driving the jet unit is 2800rpm, then the governor should not begin to operate
until at least 2850rpm. On most diesel engines this means the "no load" governor setting (or "high idle")
should be at least 3050rpm (i.e. 250rpm higher than the loaded maximum RPM).
Ensure that the low idle RPM is set high enough to avoid any vibration in the driveline. Extensive idling with
the driveline vibrating may damage the jet unit.

Dry run kit (optional extra)


Available as on optional extra, the jet unit can be fitted with a dry run kit.
The dry run system is typically used for man-overboard boats and lifeboats where the engines need to be
started before the vessel is in the water.
The dry run kit consists of a special marine bearing which can operate out of the water for short periods of
time. Standard rubber marine bearings must not operate dry.

Scope of use
Because there is no cooling for a dry run system, the water seal and the marine bearing will heat up rapidly
when the vessel in not in the water.
Note the following limits to ensure adequate component life:

Maximum dry run time 3 minutes


Maximum dry run engine speed 1000rpm
Minimum time between dry runs 1 hour

The dry run bearing will wear more rapidly than a standard bearing if used continuously in dirty water.
If possible, only use this system in clean water.
If use in dirty water for long periods is expected, then regular checks of the marine bearing wear will be
necessary.

described in this section.

Electrical wiring system


Always seek the guidance of local inspecting authority rules.

4-1
Precautions Against Corrosion HJ292 Product Manual

D.C. systems
The DC system should use two insulated "normally conducting" wires, a positive and a negative.
The negative must not run through the frame of any unit, through the hull of the boat, or through the
bonding system. Do not use an earth return system.
It is recommended that engine starter motors or other DC motors should be the two wire type with an
insulated negative terminal rather than having their chassis connected to the battery negative. This is to
ensure starting currents do not pass through the earth bonding system.
In smaller vessels, it is common to use negative ground engine systems in which the starter motor, starter
solenoid, and alternator are single pole devices using the engine block as the local return conductor. In this
situation, it is important to connect the engine block to the battery negative with a suitably sized heavy
duty cable.
In installations with two engines and two battery banks with cross-connect starting capability, there must be
two suitably sized heavy duty conductors between the engines.

A.C. systems
Vessels with both AC and DC circuits, must for safety reasons, use a separate earth wire for the AC system.
If a vessel with bonded aluminium jets is connected to a dock supply, without the protection of an isolation
transformer or a galvanic isolator, the dock potentials through the earth wire will cause the aluminium to
corrode. This will happen at a much greater rate than that experienced in normal sea water regardless of
whether the aluminium is protected by anodes or not.

Shore connections
Using an isolating transformer
If using AC shore supply, install an isolating transformer on board at the incoming line to preventing
potentially serious galvanic or stray current corrosion.
When an isolating transformer is used, there must be no connection between the shore supply earth and the
vessels earth bonding system. The primary winding shield is earthed to shore, while the secondary winding is
grounded on board the vessel. Only one side of the secondary winding is grounded on the secondary side of
the transformer and the vessel’s grounding circuit is tied in at this point.
There must be no DC electrical connection between the shore supply and the on board AC circuit.
Find further information (including circuit diagrams) in American Boat and Yacht Council (ABYC) publication
E-11 AC and DC electrical systems on boats.

4-2
HJ292 Product Manual Precautions Against Corrosion

Using a galvanic isolator


Alternatively with AC shore supply, a galvanic isolator can be installed on the AC earth wire just after the
shore power inlet. This isolates the vessel from low voltage D.C. galvanic currents, while allowing any short
circuit to be safely conducted back to shore.
Recommendations:
 Isolators with capacitors are preferred over isolators with diodes only.
 An indicator or alarm that shows whether the earth current is being blocked. Since the isolator only
blocks low voltages (typically below 1.2V), higher voltages will pass through the isolator causing vessel
corrosion. This indicator will enable vessel operators to monitor any potential corrosion problems.
 Must have sufficient fault capacity to allow circuit breakers to trip under fault conditions.
 Isolators that comply with American Boat and Yacht Council recommendations (ABYC A-28, galvanic
isolators) will meet these requirements and are recommended by HamiltonJet.
 A correctly wired polarization transformer in conjunction with a galvanic isolator is acceptable for
connecting to an AC shore power system.

Earth bonding system


In aluminium and most G.R.P. hulls, the jet unit (if aluminium), all metal objects, electrical equipment casings
and hull anodes should be connected with a low resistance bonding system (separate from normally current
conducting 2 wire electric system).
The bonding strip and connecting wires should be aluminium or insulated copper of at least 14.5sq mm cross
section area (e.g. 5mm diameter) to give very low (e.g. 0.01Ohm) electrical resistance.
If a copper bonding strip is used, it should not be connected directly to the jet unit, as galvanic corrosion will
occur. The copper bonding strip should be connected to the jet unit via a stainless steel terminal connector.
The bonding wire or strip which runs the length of the hull should be kept clear of bilge water.
The main function of the bonding system is to provide a path to battery negative, for stray currents.
An exception exists for steel and G.R.P. hulls whose reinforcement is carbon fibre, the jet unit must be totally
insulated from the hull and machinery thus relying totally on its own anodes for protection.
When a bonding system is used, it is essential that cathodic protection is provided. This cathodic protection
can be in the form of sacrificial anodes or an impressed current system.
To minimise corrosion from stray currents emanating from within the vessel, all power sources (battery and
battery charger negatives, AC generator and the ship side of the shore supply earth) should be connected to
the earth bonding system at a single common earth point. This will hold these circuits at a common voltage.
Any stray currents will then have a direct path back to the battery negative or the AC source.
Alternatively, this connection to the battery negative can be deleted, provided that the following are carried
out:
 There is a two wire normally current conducting electrical system which is isolated from the hull, jet unit
and engine.
 There is an effective leakage monitoring system, such as the "test light" system, which is used regularly
and the results are recorded.
Without the bonding system to battery negative connection, stray current corrosion is possible and it is
important to check for leakage:
 For every item of electrical equipment in operation.
 When there is any alteration to the electrical system of the boat.
 When any electrical connection is made to shore.

4-3
Precautions Against Corrosion HJ292 Product Manual

Corrosion monitor
It is recommended that a high impedance corrosion monitor be fitted.
There must be no possibility of an electrical connection between the jet units and the ships batteries.
If the jet units are isolated from the hull, corrosion monitoring of each jet unit external wetted surface and
internal intake duct should be carried out.
If the jet units are electrically connected to the hull, corrosion monitoring of the hull only and each jet unit
internal intake duct should be carried out.

Trim tabs and other submerged fittings


When 2 dissimilar metals are electrically connected and submerged in seawater, then galvanic corrosion can
occur.
If a large stainless steel fitting (such as a trim tab) is electrically connected to the jet unit, then the corrosion
protection of the jet unit will be compromised.
In order to ensure adequate corrosion protection for the jet, stainless steel trim tabs should be fully painted
or electrically isolated from the jet unit, or preferably both. Normally an anode would be fitted to the trim
tab to provide corrosion protection to the tab. Trim tabs made of aluminium will not affect the jet corrosion
protection.

Earth connections for electronic equipment


Radios, radar and other transmitting equipment should not use the jet unit for an earth plate.
Be guided by the installation instructions for the equipment, but in general these systems should be
electrically insulated from the jet unit except that both the earth plate and the metal casings of the
transmitting equipment should be connected to the earth bonding system.
 An unpainted metal earth plate is required which is always in electrical contact with the sea water, even
at planing speeds.
 The plate is typically 400 x 400mm and should be located close to the transmitting equipment but well
forward of the jet units.
 For a metallic hull, the earth plate can be a thickened area of the hull, formed by welding additional plate
inside the hull skin, up to 25mm thick.
 For a non-metallic hull a separate metal earth plate must be fixed externally to the hull. It should be of
material compatible with both the "bonding strip" and hull (stainless steel is likely to be the best option.
It is not advisable to use copper as it can cause corrosion problems for other metals).
 The "plate" should have a large stud welded to its centre protruding inboard to which all the zero voltage
wires from equipment are connected.
 Connect the earth plate using an insulated wire to the vessels "earth bonding system".

4-4
HJ292 Product Manual Precautions Against Corrosion

Anodes
The Jet unit will be fitted with one or more anodes to protect against corrosion.
The anodes are made from aluminium alloy to MIL-A-24779 (SH).
Do not paint over the anodes as this will prevent their correct operation. If corroding, the anodes are
providing protection and should be inspected regularly and replaced when 2/3 corroded.
It is common for anodes to be partially covered with a very loose scale, the colour of which depends on local
water conditions. Typically this scale will be creamy white, light brown or green and, providing it is loose (i.e.
easily scraped off with a fingernail) is normal.
If the anodes are not corroding when the vessel is in seawater, they are not functioning correctly and the
cause should be investigated. One possible reason could be poor electrical contact between the anode and
the component it is protecting. The electrical resistance should be less than 0.2Ohms.
Poor quality anodes may contain excess iron impurity and will tend to form a dense non-conducting oxide
film (usually charcoal grey in appearance). This condition occurs mainly in fresh water. Test for continuity
between the anode and the jet unit using a multimeter set to ohms. If the anode has to be scraped with a
knife to get a conductive reading, the anode is oxidized and must be replaced. Sanding the anode surface
provides a temporary solution, but will eventually re-oxidize.

Hull anodes
Further anodes should be fitted on the hull, sufficient for hull protection, as determined using a portable
reference electrode and digital voltmeter and / or a corrosion monitor.
The hull anodes should remain immersed at all times.

Anodes fitted to the transom of a planing craft will not be immersed when the craft is at
speed and will not provide protection.

Anti-fouling paint
Anti-fouling paints
Do not apply copper oxide based anti-fouling paints.
Do not paint over the anodes.

Anti-seize compound
Anti-seize compounds
Do not use anti-seize compounds that contain graphite, nickel, copper or metal flake - these will
cause corrosion.
Anti-seize compounds, usually containing zinc flakes, are available for aluminium.

Precautions Against Corrosion HJ292 Product Manual

Impressed current protection


Use impressed current protection if desired. Follow the supplier's instructions. Impressed current systems
should have a "fail safe" feature which prevents the potential falling below -1100mV referenced to a silver /
silver chloride reference electrode.

Steel hulls and carbon fibre reinforced F.R.P. hulls


For steel and carbon fibre reinforced (F.R.P) hulls, the jet unit must be electrically
insulated from the hull.

An insulating kit is supplied with the jet unit for steel installations.
For carbon fibre reinforced hulls, an alternative reinforcing fibre (such as glass) must be used in the area
where the jet unit is mounted to ensure that carbon fibre does not contact the jet unit or fasteners.

Earth bonding system (not normally current conducting)


If a negative earth system is used on the vessel, it must not be connected to the jet unit.
Each part of the vessel electrical system should use two wires, a positive and a negative.
With electrical auxiliary equipment installation be guided by your electrician. Do not earth electrical
equipment to the jet unit, but to a separate earth.

Checking the insulation


Regularly check the insulation between the jet unit(s) and the steel hull.
With the vessel out of the water
 Rinse the sea salt from the jet unit/hull area using fresh water.
 The resistance between the jet unit(s) and the hull should be greater than 1000 Ohms.
With the vessel in the water
For steel hulls:
 Place a silver / silver chloride half-cell in the sea water.
 Connected the half-cell to the common of a digital voltmeter (set to read 0 to 2000mV).
 Connect the positive terminal of the voltmeter to the hull and note the reading.
 Repeat with the positive terminal of the voltmeter connected to the jet unit(s) body.
 Place a large anode in the sea water and electrically connect the hull to the anode.
 Repeat the voltmeter readings.
 If jet unit(s) is insulated from the hull, the mV readings for the jet unit(s) should not change.
 The mV readings for the hull should be more negative (e.g. if the reading is -800mV without the anode
connected then with the anode connected the reading should be approx. -850mV).

Hull preparation
Cut openings in the bottom of the hull to fit the intake blocks
The central longitudinal and keel plate strip should be in position before installing the intake blocks.
The transom should be in place before installation of the intake blocks.

Installing the intake block


The intake block forms the inlet for the jet unit. It is either moulded, welded or bolted (depending on hull
material) into an opening in the hull bottom.
The intake block carries the jet unit and transmits the propulsive loads into the hull.
Once fitted, the intake block becomes an integral part of the hull.

GRP hull intake block


Manufactured from LM6 grade aluminium, the intake block comes ready to mould and bolt into the bottom
of the hull.

For carbon fibre reinforced hulls:


Use non-conductive reinforcing fibre at the intake block and transom plate to electrically
isolate the jet unit from the hull.
Electrical connection between the carbon fibre hull and the jet unit will cause jet corrosion.

Engine mounting
Mount the engine via mounting feet fixed to the engine bearers.
The feet and bearers do not have to withstand the propulsion thrust load as this directly transmits from the
jet unit directly to the hull.
Flexible engine mounts reduce vibration and noise. Use these in conjunction with a driveshaft system which
does not cause a radial or side load at the jet coupling as the engine moves.

General
Position the engines to give the craft the most suitable fore and aft trim for the proposed boat speed.
For semi-planing and moderate planing speed craft, position the engine(s) well forward towards amidships
for best trim and speed.
For very high speed vessels the position the engine(s) aft, close to the jet unit, to obtain best trim and speed.
Contact your local HamiltonJet distributor for advice or follow the boat designer's recommendations.

Installation checks for the jet unit


After installation, do the following checks to ensure correct installation.

Spiral wrap protects all cylinder shafts during shipping. Carefully remove the wrap before
first operation.

Carefully inspect all hydraulic cylinder shafts and pushrods for scratches, paint, weld splatter,
dirt or any other contamination.
To prevent damage to the seals, these shafts must be perfectly clean before operating the
hydraulics.

Anti-fouling paints
HJ274 to HJ364 jet models have optional paint finishes: 'grey gloss' or 'antifoul' schemes.
HJ403 and larger are available with the antifoul scheme only.
The jet unit must have additional coats of antifoul applied typically within two weeks of the
launch of the vessel (refer to the antifoul manufacturers datasheet).
The supplied antifoul coating will require light abrasion and cleaning prior to further
application of antifoul (► page 8-2).
Do not apply copper oxide based anti-fouling paints since these will cause jet corrosion. Only
use antifoul for which the paint manufacturer has stated suitability for use on aluminium
substrates.
Do not paint over the anodes.

Jet unit mounting


Check the following:
 Check the fairing of the intake block to the underside of the hull. Contours should be smooth with no
steps or protrusions greater than 2mm.
 There are no flow obstructions forward of the intake block. Refer to figure: Mono Hull Vessel (► page 3-
4).
 Check for distortion or gaps between the intake block and the intake base flange.
 The marine sealant between the intake block and the jet intake flange (and insulating gasket if used) has
not squeezed out into the water passage. Trim off any excess sealant if necessary.
 Engine exhausts are above the expected waterline or well clear of the waterjets.
 The hull trim tabs (if fitted) will not interrupt reverse flow from the jet units.
For steel hulls
 When installed in a steel hull, make sure that the driveshaft maintains electrical isolation of the jet unit
from the hull (resistance greater than 1000 Ohms).
 Check the insulation between the jet unit and the hull (Resistance is greater than 1000 Ohms).
 Check that the intake block gasket fits properly and is not protruding into the water passage.
For GRP hulls
 Make sure that continuity strap has been fitted between the transom plate and the jet unit.
 Check for electrical continuity between the transom plate and the intake.

Jet unit, general


Check the following:
 Make sure that the impeller matches the engine rating. View the impeller part number (stamped on the
impeller hub) through the main inspection hatch.
 If applying antifoul to the wetted surfaces of the jet unit, make sure that it is compatible with aluminium
(i.e. not copper based).
 All inspection cover o-rings and gaskets are correctly located and greased and that the tightening torque
on inspection cover securing nuts is correct.
 Before operating the jet for the first time, check that the grade and quantity of grease in the bearing
housing is correct (► page 10-32).
 Water off-take connections (if fitted) must be correctly fitted and secure. Unused water off-takes must
be fitted with plugs
 Any internal and external anodes are in place and not painted over.
 The alignment of the steering linkage rod ends and clevises are in the same plane, inboard and outboard.
Application of antifoul to new jets
HJ274 to HJ364 jet models have optional paint finishes: 'grey gloss' or 'antifoul' schemes. HJ403 and larger
are available with the antifoul scheme only.
The intention is for vessels that are not continually afloat, for example trailered boats, use the grey gloss
scheme. Do not apply antifoul paint directly over the gloss paint, as the antifoul will not adhere.
For the antifoul scheme, the wetted surfaces of the waterjet, excluding the impeller, wear ring and
mainshaft, are finished ex-factory with black coloured International Paints Trilux antifoul. After a few weeks
in air the antifoul starts to oxidise and lose its effectiveness in preventing bio-fouling accumulation. Before
launching the vessel, follow one of the following processes:
1 Restore the antifoul effectiveness by wet sanding or abrading the surface using abrasive hand pads
(Scotch-Brite).
2 Apply additional coats of antifoul as follows:
 Degrease (with a water soluble degreaser).
 Wet sand or abrade the antifouled surface using abrasive hand pads (Scotch-Brite).
 Apply additional coats of antifoul. Up to three layers of Trilux antifoul may be applied, any further coats
do not offer better fouling protection. Masking of the impeller and mainshaft is optional as it is
acceptable to have overspray on the mainshaft and impeller.
The factory application of antifoul is a single coat. To provide optimal effectiveness and life of the antifouling,
HamiltonJet recommends the application of addition coats of antifoul.

Anti-fouling paints
Do not apply copper oxide based anti-fouling paints.
Do not paint over the anodes.

Anti-fouling paints
HJ274 to HJ364 jet models have optional paint finishes: 'grey gloss' or 'antifoul' schemes. HJ403 and
larger are available with the antifoul scheme only.
The jet unit must have additional coats of antifoul applied typically within two weeks of the launch
of the vessel (refer to the antifoul manufacturers datasheet).
The supplied antifoul coating will require light abrasion and cleaning prior to further application of
antifoul (► page 8-2).
Do not apply copper oxide based anti-fouling paints since these will cause jet corrosion. Only use
antifoul for which the paint manufacturer has stated suitability for use on aluminium substrates.
Do not paint over the anodes.

Check the security of all inspection hatch covers.


For steel hulls, make sure the insulation resistance between the jet unit and the vessel hull is greater than
1000 Ohms (► page 4-6).

Post launch checks


Before starting the engine(s), check the following:
 There are no water leaks:
 At the transom seal.
 At the intake base.
 Visually check for water leaks from under the bearing housing
 The waterline is at least up to the mainshaft centreline. This will allow the jet unit to prime (pump water
properly) when the engine is started.
 The vessel is securely moored fore and aft in deep water and well clear of other objects or craft.
 Jet hydraulic power units are filled with the correct grade and amount of grease or oil.
 Control checks have been done (refer to the controls manual supplied with the jet unit).

HJ292 Product Manual Commissioning

Engine running checks (vessel moored)


Do not run the waterjet out of the water unless it is fitted with a dry run kit, or the marine
bearing and mainshaft water seal are kept wet by some means.

 With the reverse lever set to zero speed, start the engine(s) and have the engine supplier's
representative can carry out engine checks.
 If the jet unit water offtake supplies the engine cooling water, confirm where possible that water is
coming out of the engine exhaust outlets.
 Periodically check that the engine is running at the correct operating temperature. This ensures that the
engine is receiving sufficient water from the jet unit water offtake.
 Check that the cooling water hoses are secure.

Failure to check cooling water hoses may result in flooding of the vessel.

 Check for water leaks around the jet unit while the engine is running particularly under the bearing
housing (mainshaft water seal).
 Check that the jet unit and driveshaft are running smoothly (no vibration).
 Periodically check the bearing housing temperature. The bearing housing operating temperature should
not exceed 80°C.
 Check that the reverse controls are working by monitoring the reverse duct position while moving the
reverse control lever(s).
 Check that the steering controls are working by monitoring the steering nozzle position while moving the
helm (check that port helm gives port nozzle deflection, and that all nozzles are steering in the same
direction).
 Check that the steering cylinder and not the steering linkages limit the steering travel.
 After stopping the engines, check the hydraulic system oil level and refill if required.

Commissioning HJ292 Product Manual

Vessel speed and handling trials


A HamiltonJet distributor should be present to observe, record and verify results.

In the event of any problems, immediately reduce power and return to the mooring. Do not
operate the waterjet until the fault is rectified.

Leave the mooring and check that the steering is working correctly at Forward, Zero Speed and Astern.
When the vessel is moving dead ahead at speed, the waterjet coming from the steering nozzles should be
relatively clean with an even shape.
Check the jet unit and driveshafts are running smoothly (no vibration) over the entire engine operating speed
range (i.e. from idle to full ahead).
Regularly check and record the bearing housing's surface temperature.
 Due to friction caused by the seals, the bearing housing will be warm.
 Bearing operating temperature should not exceed 80°C.
 A faulty bearing can be heard and felt as vibration through the bearing housing and is likely to cause
significant heat build-up.
If possible, check the coupling joint temperatures. Increased joint temperature may indicate driveshaft
misalignment.
Regularly check and record the hydraulic oil temperature at the JHPU oil reservoir:
 After an extended run at cruising speed.
 After a period of vessel manoeuvring.
Record the maximum speed using GPS and engine revolutions.

Strong currents will result in inaccurate speed readings since the GPS only provides "speed
over ground covered" readings.

At maximum speed, verify the jet unit revolutions using a hand held tachometer at the jet unit coupling.
If possible, record vessel speed at varying engine revolutions.
Record the vessel trim, loading etc.

After initial trials (after engine shutdown)


 Do any after trial maintenance that may be required (► page 8-9).
 Ensure that all important information recorded during trials is stored for later reference.
 Check for water leaks around the waterjet, especially at the transom at the intake block and under the
bearing housing (water seal leaks).
 For steel hulls, make sure the insulation resistance between the jet unit and the vessel hull is greater
than 1000 Ohms (► page 4-6).

Maintenance HJ292 Product Manual

General
This maintenance schedule is for normal operating conditions and assumed vessel usage of 2000 operational
hours per year.
If the jet unit operates in an environment which exposes the control equipment to salt spray e.g. an open
vessel, grease all linkages on a weekly basis.
The overhaul section of this manual provides removal and refitting instructions for the various jet unit
components.

Inspection covers
Extreme care is required when removing inspection hatch covers while the vessel is afloat, as
water may enter the vessel through these openings.
Before fully removing the inspection hatch cover nuts, loosen the inspection hatch cover. If
the water level is higher than expected, then the inspection hatch cover can easily be re-
secured.
Never leave inspection covers removed without continuous monitoring of the water levels.

Before removing an inspection cover:


 Stop all engines.
 Check that the static water level will be below the inspection cover lip.
 If the static water level is too high, place ballast on the bow to raise the stern high enough
to allow removal of the inspection cover.
 Alternatively, fit an optional hatch extension/overflow preventer to the inspection hatch
opening to allow inspection of the intake at higher water levels.

When servicing hydraulic equipment, it is important to read and understand the general notes
in the overhaul section (► page 9-3).

Jet surface coating procedure


Introduction and scope
The purpose of this procedure is to outline the correct method for applying surface coatings to HamiltonJet
waterjet units. This procedure covers the following:
 Application of antifoul coatings to new jets.
 Repairing/refurbishing paint on aluminium components.
 Repairing/refurbishing paint on steel and stainless steel components.
In all instances, it is necessary to read the paint manufacturers documentation regarding paint application.
The paint manufacturer’s documentation provides information such as paint compatibility, paint
thickness/coverage, drying times, recoat times, application method, and safety precautions.
This procedure does not define factory production processes for paint application (refer to drawing 111178
for production process), however this procedure is applicable for production surface coating repair
processes.

8-2
HJ292 Product Manual Maintenance

Application of antifoul coatings


Application of antifoul over grey gloss
Trilux antifoul is not normally applied over the grey gloss, as jets are available ex-factory with the antifoul
applied to the wetted surfaces. The antifoul requires an epoxy tie coat, and it is not recommended to apply
this tie coat to the grey gloss as the epoxy is not compatible with the polysiloxane based technology used for
grey gloss. It is therefore necessary to remove the grey gloss, which is a difficult process due to its high
durability. If it is necessary to apply antifoul over grey gloss then use the following process:
 Sand to remove the grey gloss. If the surface is sanded through to bare metal then repair as per "Bare
Metal Refurbishment" below.
 Apply a tie coat of Interprotect, or alternatively Intergard 263 or Intercure 200 if Interprotect is
unavailable. Masking of the impeller and mainshaft is optional as it is acceptable to have overspray on
the mainshaft and impeller.
 Apply antifoul. Up to three layers of Trilux antifoul may be applied; and any further coats do not offer
better fouling protection.
Re-application of antifoul over existing antifoul
Trilux antifoul may be applied directly over old Trilux in good condition. This can be done after thorough
cleaning/degreasing and light abrading of the old Trilux. Abrasive hand pads (Scotch-Brite) or wet sanding is
an acceptable way of abrading the old Trilux.

Use of alternative antifoul


Alternative antifouls may be used provided the paint manufacturer has documented that the antifoul is
suitable for use on aluminium substrate. Foul release coatings (such as International Intersleek) have been
successfully used on jet boats, however these need to be applied as a complete paint system.
Trilux can be over-coated with most other makes of antifoul, refer to the manufacturer’s specifications and
recommendations for application.

Anti-fouling paints
Do not apply copper oxide based anti-fouling paints.
Do not paint over the anodes.

Maintenance HJ292 Product Manual

Bare metal refurbishment - aluminium


The aluminium castings used in the manufacture of HamiltonJet waterjet units require special attention
when the coating has been damaged down to bare metal. The surface needs to be very clean and freshly
abraded prior to the application of a suitable primer coating to ensure a good bond is achieved. Masking of
the impeller and mainshaft is optional as it is acceptable to have overspray on the mainshaft and impeller.
The area of refurbishment and immediate surroundings should be degreased with a water soluble degreaser
and thoroughly rinsed off with clean water. The area should be sanded back to fresh bare metal with 80 to
120 grit aluminium oxide abrasive paper or sanding disc feathering the edges until a smooth surface is
achieved. The affected area may be lightly sweep blast cleaned using non-metallic blast media. Appropriate
masking is required to ensure that pushrods, bearings and seals are not blasted and that blast media does
not contaminate bearings, bushes, and seals.

Heavy or medium abrasive sweep blasting of aluminium castings will cause excessive material loss
from the casting.

The surface should then be blown down or washed to remove sanding debris followed by a solvent wash to
leave the surface dry and clean. For parts finished with the grey gloss scheme, mask the remaining paint as
applying epoxy primer over the gloss finish is not recommended. Within 30 minutes of abrading the
aluminium surface, a coat of aluminium surface primer (epoxy primer or zinc chromate etch primer) should
be applied to seal the exposed aluminium surface.

It is extremely important to apply the first paint coating within 30 minutes of abrading the bare
aluminium in order to achieve the optimum paint adhesion and therefore paint life.

The use of a zinc chromate etch primer will provide optimum paint system performance in terms of corrosion
protection. Etch primer must only be applied to bare metal, and the coating should be very thin as 'thick'
layers of etch primer lack peel strength - refer to the manufacturer’s specifications and recommendations for
application.
The next step is to apply the epoxy primer. Two coats of epoxy primer are generally required to achieve an
adequate paint dry film thickness.
If filling is required to repair the metal surface, apply a suitable marine epoxy filler. The filler should be
applied after application of the epoxy primer. Sand the filler to achieve a smooth surface and then apply a
further coat of epoxy primer over the filler.
Finally, apply the appropriate top coats to the primed surfaces.

8-6
HJ292 Product Manual Maintenance

Bare metal refurbishment - steel and stainless steel


The area of refurbishment and immediate surroundings should be degreased with a water soluble degreaser
and thoroughly rinsed off with clean water.
Abrasive blast the surface clean to achieve a finish to Sa 2.5 (or to equivalents - AS1627.4 Class 2.5, NACE 2,
SSPC – SP10). Feather the edges back 20-30mm onto sound substrate. Appropriate masking is required to
ensure that pushrods, bearings and seals are not blasted and that blast media does not contaminate
bearings, bushes, and seals.
The surface should then be blown down or washed to remove sanding debris followed by a solvent wash to
leave the surface dry and clean. For parts finished with the grey gloss scheme, mask the remaining paint as
applying epoxy primer over the gloss finish is not recommended.
Within 4 hours (steel) or 1 hour (stainless steel) of abrasive blasting, a coat of steel surface primer must be
applied to seal the surface - refer to the manufacturer’s specifications and recommendations for application.
If filling is required to repair the metal surface, apply a suitable marine epoxy filler. The filler should be
applied after application of the epoxy primer. Sand the filler to achieve a smooth surface and then apply a
further coat of epoxy primer over the filler.
The next step is to apply the primer/tie coat to provide further corrosion protection and good adhesion for
the top coat.
Finally, apply the appropriate top coats to the primed surfaces.

Application of topcoats to primed surfaces


Ensure the correct primer has been applied for the intended topcoat.
Ensure topcoat is applied within the minimum and maximum recoat times specified on the manufacturer's
technical data sheet. For example, in order to achieve good adhesion to Interprotect it is necessary to apply
Trilux antifoul within 7 hours at 23°C. If the epoxy primer has been left too long prior to application of
antifoul, it will be necessary to abrade the epoxy primer and apply a further coat of epoxy primer.
If existing gloss paint areas had been masked for application of primer, then remove masking in preparation
for over-coating with the gloss finish.
When fully hard, the repaired area can be blended to the surrounding surfaces with 120 grit wet and dry
sandpaper used wet. Once the surfaces are blended satisfactorily, wash area with clean water and allow to
dry.
Apply a top coat of gloss or antifoul.

Anti-fouling paints
Do not apply copper oxide based anti-fouling paints.
Do not paint over the anodes.

Application of grey gloss over existing grey gloss


The grey gloss top coat is based on polysiloxane technology. When applying grey gloss over existing grey
gloss (in sound condition), the existing paint requires abrading to provide a key for the new coating. A tie
coat is not used, as an epoxy tie coat is not recommended on a polysiloxane coating.
For touch up repairs to the grey gloss, Interfine 1080 or Interfine 878 may be used. Interfine 1080 is a single
pack product, which makes application more convenient. Interfine 878 is a two pack product that results in a
more durable finish than Interfine 1080. Interfine 878 is recommended where optimum paint durability is
required, and particularly for the waterjet internal water passages. Interfine 878 will provide faster drying
times than 1080.
Interfine 878 can be overcoated with Interfine 878 or Interfine 1080, however Interfine 1080 should only be
used for touch ups and Interfine 1080 can only be over-coated with Interfine 1080.

Maintenance HJ292 Product Manual

Preservation (pre installation)


Jet storage prior to installation:
Provide the following storage requirements to prevent damage or deterioration of equipment:
 Temperature must be between 10°C and 40°C and above the "dew point" (so no condensation can form).
 Rotate the mainshaft through several revolutions once a month.
To protect hydraulic fittings, either:
 Protect from corrosion by coating with a thin layer of rust preventative oil or
wrap with oil impregnated corrosion protection tape.
 To prevent hydraulic seals bonding to shafts, operate cylinders a small amount every 3 months.
Open the by-pass valves (where fitted) to allow manual movement of the cylinders.

To prepare the jet unit for use:


 Check that the bearing housing has been filled with approved grease or oil (► page 10-32).

Preservation (post installation)


Do not run the waterjet out of the water unless it is fitted with a dry run kit, or the marine bearing
and mainshaft water seal are kept wet by some means.

When the vessel is not operational for an extended period, follow procedures below to prevent marine
growth and corrosion problems.
If the jet unit is to be laid-up, do the following:
 Clean down the whole jet unit and wash inside and out with fresh water.
 Hose the inside of the jet through the intake grill and the nozzle. Allow to dry completely.
 Spray with a suitable corrosion protection oil such as Shell Ensis.
 Oil and lubricate all moving parts.
If the jet is to remain moored, do the following:
 Actively prevent marine growth through the following procedures:
 Paint the inside and outside of the jet unit with antifouling compound.
 Keep light away from the jet unit.
 Moor in deep water.
 Place an opaque cover over the steering nozzle to stop light entering the inside of the jet unit.
 In shallow water fit an opaque cover over the intake screen.

Do the following at an interval ranging from 1 week to 1 month depending on local


marine growth conditions.
 Rotate the mainshaft through several revolutions once a month This can be done manually if the engine
cannot be started.
 Every month, move the reverse duct and steering nozzle fully several times. Leave the reverse duct in the
raised position and the steering push rod fully retracted.

Before moving any controls, remove any marine growth from the steering and reverse cylinder
shafts or pushrods. This will prevent damage to the seals that the shafts or rods pass through.

Daily "pre use" servicing checks


Check the following areas on a daily basis if the vessel is in regular use.
Intake screen, impeller, stator blades:
 Ensure that the water level is below the level of the inspection cover or overflow preventer before
opening jet inspection hatches.
 Check via the main inspection cover that they are clear of debris.

Inspection covers
Extreme care is required when removing inspection hatch covers while the vessel is afloat, as water
may enter the vessel through these openings.
Before fully removing the inspection hatch cover nuts, loosen the inspection hatch cover. If the
water level is higher than expected, then the inspection hatch cover can easily be re-secured.
Never leave inspection covers removed without continuous monitoring of the water levels.

Reverse hydraulic oil lines:


 Check for oil leaks, especially after adding oil to the system.
Steering hydraulic oil lines:
 Check for oil leaks around cylinders, hoses and fittings.
Position indicator sensors (if applicable):
 Check for loose electrical connections and linkages.
Thrust bearing housing:
 Check for signs of water leaking from under the bearing housing (leaking water seal). If leaking, replace
the water seal as soon as possible otherwise water could contaminate the bearing oil causing corrosion
and failure of the thrust bearing.

Jet unit servicing details


Thrust bearing
Grease every 100 hours (or 3 monthly whichever comes first).
 Grease with a good quality lithium based ball bearing grease.
 Normal operating temperature is around 50°C (120°F) and is dependent on engine power and seawater
temperature, but the bearing can operate up to 70°C. The seals will generate most of the heat.

Do not over grease, use only 30ml of grease.

Marine bearing:
The wear should be checked when the jet unit is overhauled (► page 9-54).

Do not run the waterjet out of the water unless it is fitted with a dry run kit, or the marine bearing
and mainshaft water seal are kept wet by some means.

HJ292 Product Manual Maintenance

Water seal:
Check for water leaks daily:
 Visually check for water leaks from under the bearing housing.
 Any water found indicates that the water seal is faulty. Replace the water seal as it is not serviceable (►
page 9-41).

Anodes:
Refer to drawing:
 HJ29213003 - Anode Location
Check the following:
The earth bonding system:
Check for loose or corroded connections and test to ensure a low electrical resistance (less than 0.2 Ohms).
All sacrificial anodes:
Replace when two thirds corroded (► page 9-6).

For vessels that are continually afloat, check the condition of external anodes every 3 months.
Rapid anode consumption may indicate shore connection problems. Refer here (► page 4-2) for more
information on shore connections.
For trailer boats (and other vessels that are afloat only periodically) anode consumption will be low.
For vessels operating in low salinity water (such as rivers and lakes) the anode consumption will be low due
to the low electrical conductivity of the water.
Cleaning anodes
Typically replace all anodes at the vessels scheduled maintenance haul-out (typically annually). However if
the vessel is only afloat periodically (e.g. trailer boats) or operates in low salinity water then anode
consumption will be low. Clean rather than replace any anode expected to corrode less than two thirds by
the next maintenance haul-out.
Clean the anodes as follows:
Remove marine growth by water blasting.
If a hard scale layer forms on the anodes, then clean them using coarse aluminium oxide sandpaper.
Sand anodes by hand or use an orbital, or disc sander.

Do not use a wire brush since this can cause metallic contamination of the anode, making it
ineffective.

Screen rake and bearings


Check operation every 100 operational hours (or 3 monthly whichever comes first)
 Stiffness or binding may be caused by debris caught in the screen or seized bearings. Grease bearings
periodically with water repellent grease.

Steering cotter pins


Daily:
 Check the condition of the cotter pins.
 Check that the nuts are tight.

 Make sure the steering arm on top of the nozzle is not bent.
 Check the nozzle vertical end float (► page 9-35).

Cylinders and hoses


Check after the first 5 hours and then monthly:
 Check cylinders and hydraulic hoses for any signs of oil leaks, damage or corrosion of the fittings.

Reverse cylinder shaft


Grease every 100 hours (or 3 monthly whichever comes first).
 Grease with water repellent grease through the nipple on the cylinder front head.

Do not keep pumping grease if resistance is felt as this may force the wiper seal out of the
cylinder retaining nut.

Driveshaft:
Lubricate every 500 operational hours or to suit the manufacturer's recommendations:
 Follow the manufacturer's recommendations for the type of driveshaft used.

Insulation checks (steel hulls only)

Maintenance HJ292 Product Manual

Jet unit paintwork:


The main body of the jet unit is constructed from silicon-aluminium alloy (LM6) which is resistant to
corrosion from salt water.
The castings are finished in a polyurethane paint. Periodic cleaning down, wire-brushing and repainting may
be necessary depending on water conditions, and extent of use.
When the vessel is on the slip, inspect the complete jet unit internally and externally for faults, corrosion, or
breakages. Clean down and repaint the castings where necessary (► page 8-2).

Anti-fouling paints
Do not apply copper oxide based anti-fouling paints.
Do not paint over the anodes.

Anti-seize compounds
Do not use anti-seize compounds that contain graphite, nickel, copper or metal flake - these will
cause corrosion.
Anti-seize compounds, usually containing zinc flakes, are available for aluminium.

Excessive wear:
If excessive wear or damage has been found, then undertake appropriate overhaul as described in the
overhaul section. Schedule the next maintenance period to suit the conditions found during this inspection,
using the following guidelines:
 Decrease the time between each maintenance interval if the amount of dirt and sand in the water
increases.
 Increase the time between each maintenance interval if amount of dirt and sand in water decreases.
 Decrease interval if excessive wear was found in the jet unit internal inspection.
 Increase interval if minimal wear was found at the jet unit internal inspection.

Care and storage of spare V-belts


Spare V-belts must be correctly stored to maintain their properties and qualities over a period of several
years:
Store room:
The store room should be dry and free from dust.
V-belts should not be stored together with solvents and chemicals etc.
Temperature:
The recommended storage temperature is +15°C to +25°C.
Light:
Protect V-belts from direct sunlight or strong artificial light.
Ozone:
Store rooms should not contain any ozone production items.
E.g. Fluorescent lights, mercury vapour lamps or high voltage electrical equipment etc.
Dampness:
Store rooms should not be damp. Ideally the relative humidity should be below 65%.
Storage:
V-belts should be stored without tension.
Do not stack V-belts more than 300mm high.
On board emergency spares:
There are emergency spare V-belts mounted around the vessel drive shaft(s). Protect these V-belts from
greases, oils, moisture and dust. This can be achieved using an industrial PVC cling wrap or similar.
Securely mount these V-belts away from the drive shaft making sure not to kink or hold them under tension.
Since the storage environment for these V-belts can be less than ideal, regularly inspect the stored belts
along with the in-service V-belts to ensure they have not deteriorated or been damaged.
It is recommended that when the vessel is in for routine service, the emergency spare V-belts are inspected,
and if fit for use, installed on the jets until the next service period. Then replace the emergency spares with
new V-belts

Belt life:
Well stored V-belts will be fit for service for approximately ten years from date of manufacture (potentially
more in ideal conditions).
Belts stored in machinery spaces such as wrapped emergency spares should typically be fit for service for six
years from date of manufacture.

HamiltonJet supplied Optibelt branded belts have the date


of manufacture printed on the belt.
A two digit number defines the month of manufacture and
a symbol represents the year, the following symbols
represent the year of manufacture.

For example:
The belt in the image displays a manufacturing date of
October 2016.

General information
Inspection covers
Extreme care is required when removing inspection hatch covers while the vessel is afloat, as water
may enter the vessel through these openings.
Before fully removing the inspection hatch cover nuts, loosen the inspection hatch cover. If the
water level is higher than expected, then the inspection hatch cover can easily be re-secured.
Never leave inspection covers removed without continuous monitoring of the water levels.

Loctite®
Before using any Loctite product, please read and understand the Loctite® Application Guide (►
®

page 10-3).
Secure all studs in castings using Loctite® 263.

Anti-seize compounds
Do not use anti-seize compounds that contain graphite, nickel, copper or metal flake - these will
cause corrosion.
Anti-seize compounds, usually containing zinc flakes, are available for aluminium.

Hydraulic oil
On completion of the overhaul make sure to fill all bearing housings, JHPU tanks and oil coolers
with the correct grade and quantity of oil (► page 10-32).

Smear mating surfaces not treated with sealant with a light coating of grease to aid with future
dismantling.
Fasteners that do not require Loctite® are to have grease or anti-seize applied before assembly.
Marine grade anti-seize will reduce the risk of thread galling and is recommended on M20 nuts or
larger.

Barrier cord O-rings


Barrier cord O-rings are natural rubber O-rings fitted to Inspection hatch covers. When lubricating
barrier cord O-rings, use non-petroleum based grease.
Petroleum based grease will react with the natural rubber in the barrier cord.
Identify barrier cord by its colour, either brown or white.

Introduction
Only overhaul components if:
 Worn or damaged.
 Specified on the maintenance schedule.

Before starting the overhaul:


Any control equipment (sensors, linkages etc.) attached to components to be overhauled must be
disconnected and removed.
To allow for correct reconnection, take a note of all electrical and hydraulic connections.
To prevent the entry of dirt or the loss of oil, all hydraulic fittings must be fitted with blanking plugs.
When the overhaul is finished
Commission the jet unit (► page 6-1).
Commission the control system. Refer to the controls manual supplied with the jet unit for details.

Vessel commissioning must be done after any overhaul as adjustments and connections may have
been altered during the process.

Tools:
Refer to the following technical drawing(s) in the back of this manual:
 HJ29211000 - Tool Kit.

Special tools are required for the overhaul of the jet unit.

Servicing hydraulic equipment


The majority of hydraulic failures are due to oil contamination.
It is very important to filter the oil when filling the oil reservoir.
Only qualified personnel should dismantle hydraulic equipment following the rules below:
 Immobilize the vessel to prevent uncontrolled movements.
 Before doing any maintenance, make sure that the reverse duct is in the fully down position.
 Cleanliness is of the utmost importance. Dirt or foreign material in the hydraulic system can cause
serious damage or incorrect operation. Always work in a clean environment.
 Before disconnecting hoses, thoroughly clean the outside of the fittings to prevent dirt from entering the
ports.
 When removing hoses, always make sure to plug the ports and pipes.
 Label hoses and connectors for ease of reassembly.
 Use plenty of oil absorbent cloth to prevent contaminating surrounding areas.
 Renew all seals removed during dismantling.
 Strictly adhered to all recommendations for oil grade, oil and filter inspections and changes shown in this
manual.
 In severe conditions where the oil is likely to become contaminated, replace the oil and oil filter at more
frequent intervals.
 Always check the oil level in the reservoir whenever removing oil from the hydraulic system.
 Unless otherwise specified, lubricate stainless steel hydraulic fittings with hydraulic oil or general
purpose grease (e.g. Accrolube®) (► page 10-32).

HJ292 Product Manual Overhaul

Recommendations for the fitting of oil seals


The use of a special seal fitting tool (not supplied) to fit the oil seals is recommended.
Soften the seals in hot oil to make refitting easier (maximum temp 100°C).
Do not fold the seals, collapse as shown below.

 Remove all metallic particles and other contaminants from the component before fitting seals.
 Make sure that the hydraulic system is free from metallic particles and other contaminants before fitting
components.
 Check that the seal housing is free from damage likely to harm the seal. Remove all sharp edges and
burrs from metal parts paying particular attention to ports, grooves and threads over or through which
the seal must pass during assembly.
 Clean all seal housing areas. Check that other surfaces adjacent to the passage of the seal on fitting are
free of dirt, swarf or other contaminants.
 Where the difference between a thread diameter over which as seal must pass and the seal diameter is
small, use some form of protection over the thread, such as a fitting sleeve made of hard plastic.
 Do not distort the seals during storage. Store seals in a cool, dry and dark place.
 Liberally smear o-rings, seals and metal components with a clean hydraulic fluid of the appropriate type,
or compatible grease, before fitting.
 Where sub-assemblies such as pistons, are awaiting further fitting operations, make sure not to subject
the seals to any misaligned or localised loading which will cause local deformation. Ensure sub-
assemblies remain clean.
 HamiltonJet does not recommend the use of metal levers. If used however, it is imperative that they are
completely smooth and free from nicks and burrs. Make sure that there is no damage to the metal
surfaces adjacent to the seal.

Check the fit of the marine bearing sleeve in the marine bearing.
If the bearing sleeve is badly scored or worn it should be replaced.
Replace both the bearing sleeve and the marine bearing if overhauling the impeller or replacing the wear
ring.

Generally it is better to replace both the marine bearing and the sleeve together.
However:
If the marine bearing is still in good condition but the sleeve badly scored, replace the sleeve only.
If the sleeve is still in good condition with wear less than 0.2mm, but the rubber of the marine
bearing badly worn, replace the marine bearing and keep the sleeve.

To remove the marine bearing:


 Using a suitable sized drift, press out the fairing from the tailpipe.
 Turn the tailpipe over.
 Press out the marine bearing.

To avoid damaging the stator blades when pressing the fairing and bearing from the tailpipe, place
a support at the tailpipe hub aft of the bearing and press the fairing out towards the rear.
Turn the tailpipe over and supporting the bearing hub, press the bearing forward out of the tailpipe.

Wear ring removal and replacement


Only replace the wear ring if excessively worn, or bulging inwards. This could indicate
corrosion build up underneath the wear ring.

Removal of the wear ring and insulator strip


Step 1
Find the joint in the wear ring [A].

Step 2
Force a thin screw driver between the wear ring and the
insulator, next to the joint.
Keep forcing until the end of the wear ring comes free.

HJ292 Product Manual Overhaul

Preparing a new wear ring for fitting


 Trial fit the new wear ring with no insulator fitted.
 There should be a gap of 1mm ±0.1 between the mating ends of the wear ring when completely inserted
into the bore.

The wear ring may not fit without filing the mating ends slightly to reduce the circumference.
Do not remove too much metal from the ends of the wear ring.
The wear ring must be a tight fit once the insulator is fitted.

Fitting a new insulator


 Paint the inside of the impeller race with a thin layer of two pot vinyl etch primer suitable for aluminium
and allow to dry (alternatively zinc phosphate may be used).
 Apply a thin coat of zinc phosphate epoxy primer suitable for aluminium (such as International Paints
Intercure 200 HS) and let dry.
 Apply a second coat of zinc phosphate epoxy primer.
 While the primer is still wet, fit a new insulator into the impeller race, ensuring the insulator is in contact
with the primer over the whole surface.
 Smear a thin coat of Grease over the inside surface of the insulator.
Fitting a new wear ring
Smear a thin coat of Grease over the inside surface of the
insulator
Take the test fitted wear ring and with the chamfer end
leading, twist the wear ring slightly until the two chamfers
on the front edge butt together. This reduces the front edge
diameter making the wear ring easier to insert

Gradually feed the wear ring inside the insulator.


Slide the wear ring in as far as possible by hand.

9-61
Overhaul HJ292 Product Manual

Place a heavy steel plate of the correct size, against the end
of the wear ring (the plate prevents damage to the end of
the wear ring and should cover the whole diameter) [A].
Using a large hammer, drive the wear ring evenly into the
impeller race
Continue driving until the wear ring sits flush with the inner
recess of the impeller race.
The wear ring must not contact any part of the jet unit
except for the insulating strip.
After fitting, check the electrical insulation between the
wear ring and the impeller race. The resistance should be
greater than 1000 Ohms.

The wear ring is in the correct position when it sits flush with the forward and rearward faces of the
impeller race as shown in the figure below. This gap (X) must be maintained to prevent electrical contact
between the wear ring and the tailpipe / intake of the jet unit.

Figure 79: Wear ring gap

1 Intake
2 Wear ring insulator
3 Wear ring

The wear ring must sit flush with the aft end of the intake.
There must be a gap greater than 0.8mm between the forward end of the wear ring and the
impeller race.
This gap is necessary to prevent electrical contact between the wear ring and the intake

Impeller overhaul
Avoid using excessive heat during welding.

Passivate all welds to prevent corrosion.

Impellers are stainless steel type CF8M conforming to ASTM A 743 or 316 to BS 3100.
Filler metal should have a chemical analysis similar to AISI 316L (carbon content less than 0.03%).
Post weld heat treatment is not required.

Inspection
Check the impeller surfaces for corrosion.
 Weld repair damaged areas and dress back to a smooth surface.
 Check the impeller leading and trailing edges for damage.
 Straighten and dress bent or dented blades using suitable tools.
 Bring the blade back to its original smooth profile checking against undamaged blades.
Check the leading edges.
 Build up worn or blunt leading edges up by welding.
 Sharpen the leading edges as shown on the drawing.
 Blunt impellers can cause loss of performance and cavitation.
Check the impeller O.D.
Blade leading edge repair procedure
 Dress the edge back to a smooth curve, removing the minimum amount of metal.
 Weld repair damaged edges.
 Dress both faces of the blade. Take slightly more metal off the rear side until the leading edge is the
correct thickness.
 Blend well back into the original blade surface.
 Both front and rear surfaces are to be a smooth uniform curve with no sudden bumps or change in
direction.
 Grind or file a smooth radius along the leading edge.
Impeller outside diameter (O.D.) repair procedure
 Build up an excessively worn impeller OD by welding.
 After welding, turn on a mandrel to the correct OD. Use light cuts to avoid blade distortion.
 Dress the faces back flush with the original surfaces.
 File and polish.
New max diameter New min diameter Worn min diameter
287.8 287.6 287.0

Balancing
 Balance the impeller after any welding or grinding.
 Balance the impeller statically, on a suitable mandrel set on horizontal knife edges or bars to within the
maximum out of balance specified.
 Weld 316 stainless steel balance weights to the inside of the impeller hub. Grinding is permitted.

 All painted bores must be fully cured before the application of Loctite.
 Fixing and full cure times for all Loctite will be increased at reduced temperatures.
 To prevent the product from clogging in the nozzle, do not allow the tip to touch metal surfaces during
application.
 In general, nuts that secure anodes use Loctite 243 and a spring washer. Anodes in internal water
passages use nyloc nuts, external anodes use plain nuts.

Primers, activators and accelerators


Primers are used when the surfaces to be threadlocked are not active enough to cause curing, or when the
cure is required to be accelerated.
 Primers, activators or accelerators are not required on 'active surfaces', such as bronze, brass and mild
steel.
 For 'inactive surfaces' (including stainless steel or aluminium) primers, activators or accelerators are
optional for threadlocking and are required for retaining.
 Primers, activators or accelerators are not to be applied to any painted surface.
 Allow sufficient time for primers, activators or accelerators, where applied, to dry.

Anti-fouling paints
HJ274 to HJ364 jet models have optional paint finishes: 'grey gloss' or 'antifoul' schemes. HJ403 and
larger are available with the antifoul scheme only.
The jet unit must have additional coats of antifoul applied typically within two weeks of the launch
of the vessel (refer to the antifoul manufacturers datasheet).
The supplied antifoul coating will require light abrasion and cleaning prior to further application of
antifoul (► page 8-2).
Do not apply copper oxide based anti-fouling paints since these will cause jet corrosion. Only use
antifoul for which the paint manufacturer has stated suitability for use on aluminium substrates.
Do not paint over the anodes.

Post launch checks


Item Check Completed
1 Check for water leaks at the transom seal, intake base, and from under
the bearing housing (water seal leaking). 
2 For oil lubricated main bearings (HJ-362 and above), check that the
correct dipstick is fitted and that oil level is correct (dipstick length is 
dependent on the deadrise angle of the jet unit). For HM-651 to HM-811,
check that the dipsticks are on the correct side (refer to the dipstick
drawings in the product manual).

3 For grease lubricated main bearings, add grease until grease comes out of
the front seal as shown in the "Initial Bearing Housing Re-Assembly" 
section.

Make sure that all bearing housings and JHPU tanks are filled
with the correct quantity and grade of oil.

4 If a main bearing oil pump is fitted (HM-651 to HM-811) then check the
oil pump operation by loosening the oil pipe fitting on top of the bearing 
housing and checking for oil flow.

5 Make sure the JHPU oil level is correct. Add oil as required (► page 10-
32)
6 If the vessel is fitted with shore power, then unplug the shore power and Measured
measure the electrical resistance between the hull and the earth pin of Resistance
the vessel shore power plug. A correctly wired isolation transformer or
galvanic isolator will result in high electrical resistance (greater than 1kΩ) _______Ω
between the hull and the earth conductor (refer to "Precautions Against
Corrosion" section of the product manual).

Appendix HJ292 Product Manual

Engine checks (vessel moored)


Item Check Completed
1 The marine bearing must operate wet unless the optional dry run kit
has been fitted (dry run kit available for HJ-212 to HJ-364 jet units 
only).
For a jet unit fitted with a dry run kit, the following applies:
 Maximum dry run time of 3 minutes with engine speed not
exceeding 1000rpm. Minimum time between dry runs of 1 hour.
 Do not operate the standard jet unit with the vessel out of the
water, or with the vessel ballasted such that the jet unit does not
prime (pump water properly) when the engine is started.
For jets specified with a water feed system for the water seal and
marine bearing (specified on jets where the mainshaft is above the
static waterline, typically on multi-jet monohulls with high deadrise),
check that water is being supplied to the water seal and marine
bearing before running the jet unit.

2 Ensure the vessel is securely moored fore and aft and in deep clean
water. 
3 With the reverse controls set to "zero speed", the engine(s) may be
started and the engine suppliers representatives can carry out engine 
checks.

4 If the engine cooling water is taken from the jet unit offtake, confirm
that water is coming out of the engine exhaust outlets where 
possible. Periodically check that the engine is running at the correct
operating temperature. Check that the cooling water hoses are
secure.

Failure to check cooling water hoses may result in flooding of


the vessel.

5 If the vessel is equipped with HSRC or HYRC and the pressure alarm
sounds, immediately shut the engine off and refer to the controls 
product manual to check adjustments. Failure to immediately shut
down the engine may result in serious damage to the hydraulic pump
due to overheating.

6 Check for water leaks around the jet unit while the engine is running
particularly under the bearing housing (mainshaft water seal). 
7 Check that the jet unit and driveshaft are running smoothly (no
vibration). 
8 Periodically check the bearing housing temperature. The temperature
should not exceed 80ºC. On multi-jet installations, all bearing 
housings should be at a similar temperature.

9 Check that the reverse controls are working by monitoring the reverse
duct position while moving the reverse control lever(s). 
10 Check that the steering controls are working by monitoring steering
nozzle position while moving the helm (check that port helm gives 
port nozzle deflection, starboard helm gives starboard nozzle
deflection and that all nozzles are steering in the same direction).

11 Check that steering travel is limited by the hydraulic steering cylinder


and not the steering linkage (for jet units fitted with steering cylinders 
and linkages).

12 After stopping the engine, check the main bearing and JHPU oil levels
and replenish if required. 

Vessel trial
Item Check Completed
1 Leave the mooring and check that the steering is operating correctly at
"Forward Speed", at "Zero Speed" and going "Astern". 
2 Observe the jet stream when going "Dead Ahead" at speed to ensure
that it is relatively clean with an even shape. 
3 Check the jet unit and driveshafts are running smoothly (no vibration)
over the entire engine operating speed range (i.e. from idle to full 
ahead).
4 Periodically check the bearing housing temperature and record the
temperature once it reaches a steady value. Due to friction caused by 
the seals, the bearing housing is likely to be warm. The temperature
should not exceed 80°C.
5 If practical check the driveshaft coupling joint temperatures (if fitted).
Increased joint temperature may indicate driveshaft misalignment. 
6 Periodically check the hydraulic oil temperature at the oil tank. Record
the temperature reading after a sustained run at cruising speed and 
after a period of vessel manoeuvring.
7 Record maximum speed (using GPS) and engine revolutions (strong
currents will result in inaccurate speed readings since the GPS provides 
speed over ground). Verify the jet revolutions at maximum speed, using
a hand held tachometer at the jet unit coupling
8 Record vessel speed at varying engine revolutions if possible.

9 Record observations on vessel trim, loading, etc.

After initial trials


Item Check Completed
1 Refer to the maintenance section of the product manual for any
servicing that may be required on completion of trials. 
2 For steel hulls check that the jet unit is insulated from the hull. The
resistance should be approximately 100Ohms but will vary depending 
on water salinity and hull characteristics. Refer to the Precautions
Against Corrosion section of the product manual.

3 Check for water leaks around the waterjet, especially at the transom at
the intake block and under the bearing housing (water seal leaks). 

 Multipass runs may be necessary depending on plate and casting thickness.
 Stitch 75mm with 75mm gaps for first 2 runs to minimize distortion.
 Stitch sequence for the intake block to be a star sequence, rather than proceeding linearly around the
block circumference.
 Grind stop starts before filling in. Subsequent runs may be full length runs.
14 Back gouging
 Chipping, routing, milling, grinding or other suitable methods are to be employed at the root or under
side of the weld to obtain sound metal before applying subsequent beads.
 Grind stop/start craters.
15 Visual inspection of welds acceptance level
 No cracks, porosity, lack of fusion, cold laps or undercut.
 Use dye penetrant to check outer surface of welds and intermediate weld passes, such as root passes,

Drivers guide
Starting up

Never stop the engine(s), or disengage the drive to the jet unit, when approaching a
mooring or at any time when control of the vessel may be required.

Before starting the engine(s), check the following:


 The vessel is securely moored fore and aft in deep water and well clear of other objects or craft.
 The helm is centred and the reverse controls are at zero speed.

With jet or engine driven hydraulic pumps, it is not possible to move the reverse duct until
the pump is running.

 Make sure that clutches and gearboxes, if fitted are in the neutral position.
After starting the engine(s):
 Adjust the helm and reverse levers, to control vessel movement

Ahead, zero speed and astern controls


Achieve "Astern" and "zero speed" by re-directing the jetstream using the reverse duct.
When the fully lowered, the reverse duct redirects all the jetstream back under the vessel giving "maximum
astern thrust".
When partially lowered, the jetstream splits giving some ahead and some astern thrust.
At a certain reverse duct position, the ahead and astern thrusts will be equal and the vessel will not move
ahead or astern regardless of the throttle opening. This is the "zero speed" position (Do not confuse this
term with the neutral position of a gearbox when the driveline stops rotating).
When operating the reverse controls, the jet unit is always rotating regardless of the position of the reverse
duct. Selecting any intermediate position between ahead and astern will give infinitely variable speeds when
manoeuvring.

Figure 89: Reverse duct positions

B Zero speed
C Maximum astern
1 Jet stream

10-38
HJ292 Product Manual Appendix

Power assisted slowdown


Only use this procedure in an emergency.
To achieve a fast slowdown, quickly lower the reverse duct while the vessel is at speed.

If in lightweight planing craft, the "astern" or "zero speed" positions are selected with the throttle
left open and the boat moving forward at speed, the resultant "braking effect" can be very severe.-
even more so than full braking with a motor vehicle.

 Power assisted slowdown produces very rapid deceleration.


 Do not use full helm control until the vessel has slowed.
 Select zero speed as soon as the vessel has slowed.

For normal operation to "brake" the vessels forward motion:


 Close the throttle.
 Select zero speed or astern.
 Achieve the desired braking by gently opening the throttle.
 Close the throttle as soon as the vessel has slowed to a standstill.
 Do not use full steering until the vessel has slowed.

Steering
The waterjet's mainshaft must always be rotating whenever steering thrust is required.

The steering nozzle deflects the jetstream to port or starboard causing the vessel to steer to port or
starboard respectively.
Note the following points when operating a waterjet powered vessel:
 With the engine is stopped, there will be no jet of water to deflect. The vessel cannot then be steered or
stopped.
 Never stop the engine or disengage the drive to the jet when approaching a mooring or at any time when
steering will be required.
 The more the throttle is opened the greater the steering effect - i.e. the sharper the turn.
 Steering is available at "zero speed" as well as all ahead and astern speeds.

It is important to note that there is no reversal of the steering while the vessel is moving
astern. When turning the helm to port, the bow of the vessel will also turn to port
whether the vessel is moving ahead or astern. This is the opposite of how steering works
in a motor vehicle.
It is recommended that new operators practice heading astern at low speeds until they
become familiar with this method of steering.

Manual control of steering nozzle and reverse duct


In the unlikely event of a complete hydraulic power failure, a degree of control over some vessels may be
possible by manually moving the steering tiller or using a rope to lift the reverse duct as described below.
If applicable, switch the control system for that jet into backup mode.
Emergency manual steering control:
 Disconnect the hose to the steering cylinder (or open the steering bypass valve on the hydraulic power
unit if fitted).
 Use the emergency tiller extension lever if available (or a suitable pipe or lever) to manually move the
steering mechanism inside the boat.
 The nozzle position is indicated on the gauge at the helm.
 A preferred method of control in multi jet vessels is to shut down the failed jet unit (with the reverse
duct raised) and continue using the other jet units.

Steering may only be possible at low RPM unless an emergency tiller extension is used.

Emergency manual reverse duct control:


 Attach a rope to the external reverse duct lifting eye (if present) or around the end of the reverse duct.
 Take the weight of the reverse duct on the rope.
 Disconnect the hoses to the reverse cylinder (or open the reverse bypass valve on the hydraulic power
unit if fitted).
 Lift or lower the reverse duct as required.
 Tie off the rope to lock the reverse duct into position.
 Return to base and have the fault rectified.

HJ292 Product Manual Appendix

Emergency manoeuvring
Single jet unit
The vessel can be partially manoeuvred by raising and lowering the reverse duct with a rope The engine must
be kept at idle RPM.
Multiple jet units
Shut down the engine driving the jet without reverse and manoeuvre using the other jet(s).

Manoeuvring and docking


Low speed manoeuvring and docking
Manoeuvre the vessel as follows:
 Move the reverse control lever to the "zero speed" position.
 Set the throttle to 1/3 open (in strong tide or wind, increase the throttle opening to obtain greater
response as required to suit the conditions).
 A slight movement either way from the "zero speed" position will be sufficient to move the vessel ahead
or astern until the manoeuvre is complete.
 Steering will be very responsive at this throttle opening. Full steering control is available at all
ahead/astern control lever positions and there is no change of steering "sense" at any time.
 Manoeuvre at a fixed throttle setting, working the steering with one hand and the ahead/astern control
lever with the other hand.

 Do not work the throttles - leave as set. With twin jets, manoeuvre using the helm with one
hand and both reverse levers with the other hand.
 Use only low engine RPM - high RPM will give faster response but makes control more difficult.
 If the bow is rotating to starboard, use port lock to stop the rotation (or vice versa) then centre
the helm to hold the heading.
 If the vessel is moving ahead, then move the reverse lever(s) astern to bring the vessel to rest
(or vice versa) and then zero speed selected to hold the heading.

Moving sideways
Moving sideways, twin waterjet

The following procedure moves the vessel to port. Transpose port and starboard to move to starboard.
Set both reverse control levers to zero speed and make sure the vessel is stationary.
Set both engine throttle levers to just above idle with slightly higher rpm on the port side.
 Set steering to ahead.
 Move the port reverse control lever to full astern and the starboard lever to full ahead. This will cause
the bow of the vessel to swing to port.
 Turn the helm to starboard to counteract the bow's port rotation.
 The vessel now moves sideways to port.
 Adjust the port engine rpm or bring the starboard reverse control lever back towards the zero speed
position to prevent fore and aft movement (higher rpm moves the vessel aft).
 With the vessel positioned correctly, move both reverse control levers back to zero speed and centre the
helm.

If the vessel is moving sideways too fast:


 Set the reverse control levers to zero speed.
 Return the helm to the ahead (centred) position.
Alternatively, set the controls for sideways movement in the opposite direction until the vessel
stops moving then:
 Set the reverse control levers to zero speed.
 Return the helm to the ahead (centred) position.
 Set the throttle RPM to idle
The required control settings will vary according to wind and tide conditions.

Moving sideways, triple waterjet

With triple waterjets


Using all three waterjets to move sideways gives best results.
The following procedure moves the vessel to port. Transpose port and starboard to move to starboard
 Set steering to ahead, all three reverse ducts to the zero speed position and rpm on all engines to the
same value.
 Use the centre waterjet's reverse duct to control fore and aft movement (duct approximately 80%
reversed).
 Move the port reverse control lever to full astern and the starboard lever to full ahead. This will cause
the bow of the vessel to swing to port.
 As the bow begins to swing, turn the helm to starboard to counteract the port rotation of the vessel. The
vessel will now move sideways to port.
 This method of sideways manoeuvring should result in 33% more side thrust than using only two
waterjets. Once set up, use only the centre waterjet's reverse control lever and helm to control sideways
movement.

If the vessel is moving sideways too fast:


 Set the reverse control levers to zero speed.
 Return the helm to the ahead (centred) position.
Alternatively, set the controls for sideways movement in the opposite direction until the vessel
stops moving then:
 Set the reverse control levers to zero speed.
 Return the helm to the ahead (centred) position.
 Set the throttle RPM to idle
The required control settings will vary according to wind and tide conditions.

10-43
Appendix HJ292 Product Manual

To stop sideways movement


Before the vessel reaches the required position:
 Set the reverse control levers to zero speed.
 Return the helm to the ahead (centred) position.
 Set the throttle RPM to idle.
Alternatively, set the controls for sideways movement in the opposite direction until the vessel stops moving
then:
 Set the reverse control levers to zero speed.
 Return the helm to the ahead (centred) position.
 Set the throttle RPM to idle.

Cruising
Running at speed with a partially blocked inlet grill or debris on the impeller will result in cavitation
damage to the jet unit.
Take care to prevent cavitation damage to the jet units, as described below:
 Acceleration should be gradual. Full power cannot be used at low vessel speeds such as when operating
on one engine only.
 If there is a blockage of the jet unit, the engine will run at a higher than normal RPM, the vessel will
accelerate slowly and with reduced best speed. If such symptoms occur, immediately slow the vessel and
clear the blockage.
 In conditions of severe weather or overload, reduce the engine speed accordingly.

Shallow water operation


Do not run the jet unit if the vessel has run aground as damage may occur to the impellers and
stator.

If the steering becomes jammed, moving the helm quickly from side to side may free the steering nozzle.

The use of excessive force at the helm could damage steering components. Clear a severe jam-up of
the steering nozzle from the rear of the vessel.
Thoroughly check all steering components if a severe steering jam has occurred.

It is important to avoid pumping stones, sand, etc. through the jet unit as this will blunt and wear the
impeller.
The following diagrams illustrate good and bad practice:

Figure 91: High speed planing in shallow water


At high planing speeds, shallow water operation is not a problem until the vessel almost grounds.

10-44
HJ292 Product Manual Appendix

Figure 92: Shallow water operation slow speed

At slow displacement speeds avoid using high RPM in shallow water.

Figure 93: Shallow water operation idle

If it is not possible to pick a deep water area to start and stop in, then "idle" over the shallow area into deep
water before accelerating up to planing speed.
Momentarily stopping the engine will allow any debris picked up in the intake screen to drop away.

Acceleration to high speed


Running at speed with a partially blocked intake screen or debris on the impeller will
result in cavitation damage to the jet unit.

When leaving an area of shallow or debris filled water, ensure jets are well clear of the debris before
accelerating to high speed.
If debris accumulates in the jet unit, the engine will run at higher than normal RPM and the vessel will
accelerate slowly and may not reach full (planing) speed.
Prior to commencing operations, remove the inspection cover and check for debris around the impeller or
intake screen.

Make sure that the water level is below the level of the inspection cover before removing.

10-45
Appendix HJ292 Product Manual

Aerated water
Under certain conditions, some hulls may feed aerated water into the intake of the jet units.
When operating in areas where the water may be excessively aerated (e.g. fast flowing rapids or surf), note
the following:
 There may be a loss in thrust due to the jet unit pumping a significant amount of air instead of water.
 The impeller may unload suddenly causing the engine RPM to fluctuate wildly.
When these symptoms occur, reduce engine speed until the jet unit maintains a steady RPM and thrust.

Blockages (debris in the jet unit)


Avoiding blockages
Water weed, sticks, and other debris will not normally block or harm the jet unit.
Steer around debris if possible, as any obstruction of the intake screen, impeller or tailpipe stator vanes can
affect the jet unit's performance.

Detecting blockages
In water with lots of debris, it may be necessary to clear the intake screens and impellers before each run.
In many cases debris can still accumulate with the vessel moored.
Any of the following can indicate a blocked jet unit:
 Engine RPM increases.
 Lack of jet thrust (vessel speed drops).
 Abnormal noise and vibration from the jet unit.
Clearing blockages
To clear a blocked jet unit try the following:
 Slowing or stopping the engine driving the blocked jet unit will often clear the blockage. This works best
when the vessel is still moving forward at speed.
 Backflush the blocked jet unit (only possible if a reversible gearbox is fitted):
 Stop or slow the vessel to displacement speed.
 Move the reverse duct to the zero speed position.
 Reverse the rotation of the blocked jet unit by engaging reverse gear and opening the throttle slightly.
 It may be necessary to repeat the above procedure several times to clear the blockage.

To prevent damage to the hydraulic pump unit and the preload bearing, do not operate
backflush for more than 30 seconds. Keep the engine speed below 1000 rpm

 Remove the inspection hatch cover (s) on the intake and manually clear the obstruction.

10-46
HJ292 Product Manual Appendix

Using the inspection cover


Inspection covers
Extreme care is required when removing inspection hatch covers while the vessel is afloat, as water
may enter the vessel through these openings.
Before fully removing the inspection hatch cover nuts, loosen the inspection hatch cover. If the
water level is higher than expected, then the inspection hatch cover can easily be re-secured.
Never leave inspection covers removed without continuous monitoring of the water levels.

Before removing an inspection cover:


 Stop all engines.
 Check that the static water level will be below the inspection cover lip.
 If the static water level is too high, place ballast on the bow to raise the stern high enough to
allow removal of the inspection cover.
 Alternatively, fit an optional hatch extension/overflow preventer to the inspection hatch
opening to allow inspection of the intake at higher water levels.

Overflow preventer/hatch extension (optional extra)


The overflow preventer or hatch extension, is an optional extra for use with jet units where the water level
(when the vessel is fully laden) is above the normal level of the main inspection cover.
The overflow preventer attaches to the top of the intake around the outside of the main inspection cover.

Operating with an engine and jet unit out of service


If operating the vessel with an engine and jet unit out of service, it is possible for the mainshaft to rotate due
to water flowing through the jet unit. This can lead to damage of the gearbox.
Use of shaft brake (if fitted) to stop mainshaft rotation:
Fit the shaft brake to the output shaft of the gearbox. Apply the shaft brake to stop the mainshaft rotating in
jet units not in service.
Use of engine to stop mainshaft rotation:
If there is no shaft brake fitted, prevent the jet unit mainshaft from rotating by engaging the gearbox of the
engine which is out of service.
When using this method, it is possible for the jet unit to rotate the engine. If this
occurs, disengage the gearbox and let the jet unit mainshaft rotate.

Shutting down the jet units after use


 Make sure to securely moor the vessel.
 Before shutting down the engine, centralise the steering nozzle and move the reverse lever to the zero
speed position. This ensures an orderly and fast start-up for the next time the vessel is used.
 Disengage the jet unit from the engine by selecting "neutral" on the gearbox if fitted.
 Shut down the engine.
