Probably JF but only for the following reasons.

a. Breaking the towing regulations.
b. Smuggling precious metals from U.S.
c. Libel against Tupperware.

Im afraid Im still on the fence on drives and think you cant beat a prop in the water all the time for grip,and you cant beat a leg for versatility if you want to beach your boat ,and take the ground and a trailer.

At slow displacememnt+ speed where you want the steering becouse of the conditions .I am not convinced of anything better at present.

Any pics of the Eco drive I have done a quick search and cant find anything?

At slow displacement speeds what you need is a shaft drive and a big rudder! You're not really planning to go at 6 knots in your new RIB are you?

Just to throw a spanner in the works,
At slow speed manovering a jet is great!!!
But you've got to be use to handling it!!
