The motor and pump is in the water, towed behind you - it kind of looks like a standup jetski with the handle down. You can see it in some of the vids.

Nothing I would EVER buy but you have to give them credit......I would bet money that was invented after a few nights hitting the reef and having a few cocktails!!!!!

I saw that a few weeks ago and thought it was pretty cool but could only be used on small lakes during a week day. But now that I herd the price of 100k I would much rather buy a nice boat then fly 15' in the air. JMO.
