I don't think any research has been conducted.  Jet powered boats will still 
strike a whale with their hulls and can inflict serious injury.  I would see 
the increased speed of large ocean going vessels ie.  40-50 knot ferries and 
other large vessels as being a potential problem whether they have jets or 
props.  For more information on the size and speed of these vessels, see the 
trade publications.

Great and timely question!
