I remember playing with a toy jet ski in the bath tub when I was younger. It had the same type of water jet on it. The good times...

And actually that is very pretty. How big is it? length, width, maybe height above water level

Thanks, yes, it shoots water as the boat runs. Maybe I will plug the water tube inside to redirect the propulsion to make it runs faster

Thanks, it's about 10" long, 3" wide, and the waterline is about to the bottom of the "tires" on the side. It runs good after taping a few quarters to the bottom of the hull.
