    Picking the best project engine

    I have a 10 foot boat hull that I am interested in putting a jet in. I want hp and speed so what would be the best pump and engine combos?

    mjh - thats the story that started this whole journey. I know he had problems with the strakes. The ones on this boat are the same design so I am going to straighten them out as well.
