Jet Blade Design

The Jet Blade will incorporate a three ski design that utilizes two skis in the front of the craft and one ski in the rear. These skis are located in spaced relation below an aluminum hull and operate to hydrodynamically lift the Jet Blade to a cruise position by relative water flow upon the undersides of the skis. The rear ski is attached to a horizontal jet pump that is powered by a 650cc water cooled engine. The front suspension implements an Active Tilt steering design that will allow for the agility.
