Good points, Paul.
Personally I thought it was very cool, including the chainsawed PWC body photo. And how better to find out any limitations than to build one or more and see how they work?
Considering the number of endangered species (and swimmers) that get chewed up by propellers every year, some sort of option that avoids that particular issue is attractive -- if it works.
And there will certainly be a lot of used PWC engines around in a few years...
