Holes in wood, fiberglass or composite vessels are more likely to cause problems then an aluminum hull/transom. For wash down and live well inlets I prefer welding in aluminum tubing, brace welded and extended above the water line. Makes a permanent solution and is safe. The pic attached is an example from another forum— not my boat.

For a jet boat I’d do a transom or bow/bottom intake depending on where you will mount the pump and outlet. Both will be out of the water while on step if that matters.
