Jet Boats have been about for a while!. New Zealand National Film Unit presents Jet Boats in New Zealand (1961)

Mr C.W.F. Hamilton, New Zealand inventor, demonstrates his jet boats on beautiful Lake Manapouri. Water-skiers skim behind jet boats on Lyttelton Harbour. The twin-jet 'Rangimarie' takes tourists up Wanganui River and jet-boaters shoot the rapids and shallows of the Waimakariri River.
