Have you ever designed a "power sharpie"? Is that a phrase coined by Phil Bolger?

Jetski Power plants... Are there any plans that use the jet package from an older jetski? I know it might not be the most efficient package, but having the ability to much the LCG forward (compared to an outboard) could make the boat have the safety/stability of a larger (less efficient) boat.

In the builders power boat section at the top there is a pwc build.

There is a 50 page story about that on the forum. I drafted the plans 10 years ago:
