    Is possible if you have the requisite skills:

    Easily kill someone if it is not done well.

    Thanks for that lead Rick ...I agree that if you make it yourself you could be in lethal and legal problems //Looking at the boats they use I think mine is too narrow for the raised positon of the prop..stability could be a problem so think I will stick with my longtail ...many thanks
