Yeah maybe, If adams stops and if i can find the time.... those units were a labour of love man !
The love might be a little hard to drum up as-well....feeling a little bit dirty with some snake knocking off my hull and no one willing to give me any leads !
I'm actually really surprised those putrid Chineese counterfeiters have had a go at it...they stole the MHZ jet easy enough !

Well, they were the "ants pants" of jet units, there's no dispute on that one.

Not sure if I'd say, "some snake", is knocking off your hulls. Seems that they too were a very good quality product, and as we all know in this hobby, copying or flopping is just the next step, if hulls can no longer be sourced from original manufacturer. Seems the interest in Swashdrive hulls and Jets is still there, geze .... don't think it really went away at all, its just know one could really get anything for a while.

My solution for you Craig, start again with those highly sort after jet units and hulls, even if you go under a different name, as MickieB said. Wish I had the talent and know how to produce products that a lot of people want, but I don't, so I need to buy ..... hehe

Cheers

maybe if you had the genuine hulls up for sale then instead of people buying those knockoff hulls they would go the genuine ones? I know I would prefer the real thing. just a thought?

Any updates on the idea of Swashdrive jets being produced again, Craig ?

I don't think you'll have an issue of not being able to sell them. ....... :-)

Cheers

Slightly off topic but somewhat related... I recently saw these jet surf boards - (http://www.jet-surf.com/en/) and was wondering thr thoughts on the jet pumps from an RC boat prespective if they would be powerful enough? I'd love to try and build a Jetsurf board as new ones cost $15,000 - its a pretty specialized engine and a carbon haul but thought I'd start at the pump first get some thoughts and and evaluate the viability

the swashdrive/Jettec pump may be up to it, but I don't think Adam has made any in a while (Jettec). they are by far the best RC jetpump you'll get, http://jettec.co.nz/model-range/14-s...d-accessories/
