    If a sheet of water hits your air prop, you don't want it to explode in a shower of shenanigans

    Will have to consult with some seaplane peeps on that

    Anyone ever taken one of the longer jetskis for a run? If you have, what would your thots be on fitting a drive train and controls from something like a profish to my concept hull on page 2 and forgetting about the foils. I was checking out a jetski and noticed that my drawing resembles a stretched out ski hull

    I guess I am trying to get some opinions on an extra long jetski as a 30 knot cruise bay crosser

    Still not too happy about resorting to a foiler. The whole intention is to reduce things in the water as much as possible and hydro foiling is the opposite direction

    Focus will be on a wing in ground effect craft conceptualised around a similar main hull and powertrain setup. I love the look of the 'bucket list' and wouldn't mind if it looked like that in a tri type config. Also, a 75hp motorcycle engine has already been proven with an air prop in the rear position in a WIG craft that has set precedent
