Waverunner Design

Need some help to make a wave runner for outboard 35 hp Mercur from 1964
Fiberglas over Plywood is what I will build as a stong hull construction. Some kind of hull can be over it to give the design,
The design should be a little bit extraordinary modern. Or better said absolut modern Design of the future.
I can work and build, but cant make pictures on the computer.
Any designideas or samplepictures for me?

Please be so kind and look what I did in the past, so you can see that my search isnīt the fake of a troll. I will make something seriously.

runabout made out of firewood

Thank for every help.
Erhard

You are willing to spend countless hours to build it but won't buy a engine and jet drive. There is a major reason why they use jet drives in PWC. Can you guess why?

Sure, I can .
But this should not be the discussion why it is so pretty to waste lots of energy in the jet drive .
I will use the old black Merc with nice golden decals and lots of chrome in a nearly new original stand ...............in a pwc with modern or futuristic design.
Here is one pic of an old fashioned design with outbord

It is a safety issue, people fall off these things all the time. Also Pwcs are used in very shallow water. But hey if you want to make yourself a toy. The front "Starship enterprise", the back retro. It is your choice. Like the design above in#2. I also wanted to make a Pwc that you lay down in but obviously that idea has problems.
