This motor is one of the last attempts to market a small jet drive outboard.  It uses a Tecumseh air cooled powerhead with solid state ignition and remote fuel tank.  It was a successor to the Starling Jet which used a Clinton powerhead.  The fiberglass cowl would seem to be easily lost since it was simply snapped into place with no screws or latches.  I found this at a nearby nautical flea market in 2003 and first ran it in 2004 and again in 2009.
