Practical Application of Water Jet Propulsion in Pleasure and Commercial Boats 740284

A working knowledge of such factors as power-to-weight ratios, the effect of longitudinal center of gravity, differences in basic boat designs, and the limitations of water jet propulsion is mandatory for successful applications of water jet propulsion in the pleasure and commercial boat markets.
Field-tested formulas, rules, and tables are presented in this paper to reinforce these performance factors and to help both naval architects and less formally trained designers or boat builders to make wise installation decisions.
