Re: Petrol Engine vs Pulse Jet

The only problem with the pulse jet is it is on or off, go or no go. Hard
to start no throttle and loud as H_ll ie, wear ear protection. As you
state, someone has done this and when I was a very small kid I remember
seeing a small tethered jet boat in Lake Mead some 45 years ago.
