More about & boats built by: Tylercraft (USA)

In 1965, Tylercraft announced that it was offering a 'jet engine', as an option for auxiliary power on this model and that it "used regular gasoline". The claim attracted enough attention that is was actually mentioned in 'Time' magazine.
How these worked or if any were ever installed is unknown.
