    Cool 2001 utopia 185 - no low speed thrust

    I have the Optimax 200 hp engine. it is supposed to thrust at low speed when you turn all the way left or right...which helps maneuver at low speeds. Right now, I get nothing. Overall acceleration is fine, but I miss the low speed thrust......

    It's your low speed steering assist. There is a pickup mounted on the steering column, and a magnet at either side. When the pickup on the column gets close enough to the magnet on either side, it sends a signal to the ECM to bump up the RPM.

    When I picked up my U-boat only one side worked. Turned out to just be an adjustment. You need to remove the instrument panel to gain access to the column. Start by trying to adjust the tolerances a bit tighter and see if that helps.
