Default Aluminum Jet Boat

Hi guys,
Didn't post this in all things Jet because I'm not sure on my powerplant yet. I'm not sure if I want to go Zenoah or brushless lipo. I'm new to jetboats and have wanted to build one for a while. Here's what's coming.

Weights somewhere around 12lbs I believe I read

Jet drive:
Needs some work but the machine shop is working on tightening things up for me to make it a better drive

I like the idea of electric for the ease and the lack of noise. But I like gas only because in the long run I think it would be cheaper. I think it would take some pretty beefy lipos to shove a 12lb+ boat around a lake. My other thing is I have no idea on speeds. I think that drive will max out around 25000rpm or so.

Input? Ideas? I've attempted to contact the boat builder but have yet to receive a response as far as their input on speeds and power. Figured I'd come here to what input I could get.

I think a JetTec hull and jet-pump would have been the better choice.

TOP-product without any 'flaws' .

And signing in on the Jet-forum is not a bad idea too ... L I N K

I will back Hendrix on his comment. Adam Wilton produces a superb hull and jet drive!
