Don't see why not the water is much denser that a gas,more mass being ejected backwards, a equal and opposite reaction and all that jazz.

Quite feasible. If you have seen the effort it takes two strong firemen to hold a hose jet....

candoo: If you want to see how powerful a jet of water can be, enter Jetsprint in You Tube search.
Much more powerful engines but the principle is the same, some of those boats can out accelerate most super cars.

Mmm, that rendition would have Richard Strauss turning in his grave:*

Plenty of power. There'd have to be, the overhead of the water-filled pipes must be pretty high.
