Iceman,

I think you would need to be more specific and narrow it down. e.g. Jet or Legs, and the size of engine or boat.

However you could start by searching the forums as this sort of thing has been discussed before. You will also find that the Leg and/or Jet will be just as important in terms of reliability etc.
