Default JetChopper30 geared drive demonstration

It was designed to have a big motor compartment to install geared drive, e.g. CMB .21 VAC GEARED DRIVE.

As boaters suggested. Need a stronger boat bottom. Tested with one with the rear 55% of the bottom and transom made with double fiber layers, equivalent to 600g/m^2. Weight increased by 90g. Feel that the bottom is now very strong. The hull weight is now 850g.

Believe that can make the whole bottom and transom with double fiber layers and can maintain the same shipping cost. Estimated hull weight should be 880g.
