You might find a waterjet can disturb the seabed a considerable distance below the jet.

JW; What you mean sent to market!!....rock the Khazbar!

I would have thought any US engine designed to run on unleaded would cope with LPG. You could also blow a diesel with it, this allows better combustion and produces very clean exhaust gases. A waterjet though unkind to shallow seabeds will do less damage to surface floating mamals or divers.
