    Sweet! Any video of the jet boat? I've never seen a non prop large scale before. Are there companies making them?

    Hi there.
    it is very hard to find jet drive stuff.
    I run a swashdrive jet unit but they are no longer in production :( the next best would be MHZ or Graupner
    heres anoyjer sight for jet units. as far as i know there are only three people making jet boat hulls for lager scale gas enhines, MHZ, Davette boats (usa) and me (NZ)

    Looks superb Steve, but what does it SOUND like?
    I love watching those (FULL SIZE) boats on Sky when I'm back in the country.
