    Is this thing using a jet drive or a propeller in the water? I am suspecting propeller...

    PWC 'by definition' use a jet drive. If propeller driven, it is not a 'jetski' type PWC.

    That said, I do like the idea of a hydrofoil. Could really smooth out the ride in medium rough waters. Downside is it needs a lot of water depth, especially at low speeds.
