Plenty of commercial vessels have jet drives so shouldn't be an issue especially if used regularly. My issue is not wanting to anti foul the hull.
Ahh glad to hear! Is your deck configured with the original seats and engine cover as i noticed the original cover has no soundproofing at all. I wonder if that box can be lined with the thick rubber/foam stuff often seen on inboard engine covers.
The issue with the mooring is that it dries out. Would you let your boat dry out on a sandy/stony sea bed every 16 hours or so for 3 months?
When moored, is it possible to configure the jets so they are less likely to get stones etc going in? Or perhaps do some people put some kind of cap over them? Or am I worrying about nothing!
