Looks more like a ducted prop than a true jet.

$7500 seems kind of steep to me; though I suppose if the drive appeals to you, it'd be worth it. You're probably not going to find too many jet outboards around.

Yes it's a ducted fan. True waterjet outboards do exist but they aren't very efficient.

They look similar in performance to other jets? A prop will always make more of the available hp

I still like the idea though!
