Nice work, is it screw or jet driven?
I have a plan to build a jet boat when I have money again and was thinking along your lines.
Did you build the body as well?

Its a 152mm jet pump. I bought the aluminium too build 2 boats and my mate built the hulls.
He ran an M15a with bike carbs and used the bike cdi too fire the coils . It went even better than mine on a polaris 148mm ski pump.
