I think it's time we have a thread to discuss gently and keep each other updated on the subject.

Years ago, I had to touch this particular subject and it came to me that a jetpack with air turbine above water is probably the worst mean of propulsion you could choose to propel an individual in that situation. Using a denser medium for propulsion would in theory also offers protective non-lethal means of defense (passive or active) as a lower fuel consumption and much greater range.

What would you think?
