I'm very impressed with the constuction, I am curious though, how does the water get picked up for the Jets, is there a scoop or something or just flush with the hull? And is there any filter over them?

There are two aluminium intake blocks bonded into the hull when the skin is moulded. When the jet unit is bolted to this a coarse screen is bolted to the intake. We havent forgotten about your run out, we'll organise it soon

A proper boat.
Note the judicious wearing of lifejackets, dry suits, crash helmets, & harnesses.

Mmm... so that's what it looks like when you've put all the bits together...

I can't remember where half the bits are supposed to go, and lost a fair proportion of the other half, so it might not look quite the same.
