How to build you own Jet Boat

I have a history of machining, welding, and product design, so naturally I found this video interesting. Apparently this guy is in New Zealand and provides kits for building very small Jet Boats.

I saw a price for the kit of 7000. By the time you add assembly labor you are at the price of a new ski. They look much more likely to break you legs in an accident (than a ski). I do like the metal approach for skinny water with stones and stumps.
