“and the prop under it is about 4 inches round spin”. I am curious to see the prop. I would hope it would be shrouded at the least. If not - that is super sketchy

Make sure your shorts are tied really tight.

I was thinking something like a jet pump of some sort. Clearly an open prop is way sketchy.

Regardless, for 600 bones the guy is smoking the dopes.

looks like an attempt at an aquascooter. As for your shorts being tied, also make sure the drawstring is short. Otherwise it will suck it in. Happened a few times with my aquascooter.. main reason all my swim shorts draw strings are short, they been cut off from being tangled up.

that thing way predates the aquascooter. I had to do a bit of research it uses a tecumseh motor was made way back when, I think 70's possibly earlier.
