I noticed a review of these jet motors in the NZ Fishing mag by Stephen Tapp ,aka Limitless on this site . They look impressive but I couldn't figure out a price for these little beauties, Anyone?

Playing fast and loose with the term 'jet'. Looks more like well protected propeller to me, without the reduced draft advantages of a true jet.

But if it works well I guess the name doesn't matter.

I'd like a bare bones kit that I could hook up to a standard lead acid battery.

I can't justify that price, I'd rather move to a pedal yak.
