That seems quite agressive and personal to me. Not that I really give a flier I just don't like bull!
Out of interest they have been running jets for years and the boats are good un's. The comments about having a 1to1 gearbox is bang on ( sorry cooks!) and I'd put one in my Avon If I had the room. The backflush has got me out of trouble a few times in Peterhead harbour when we have been doing drills to close to the Jellyfish herds.
And yeah Jets are wobbly at slow speed and the answer is more revs and less bucket I think that got covered to! But Hey WTF do I know!
