I have just spent a fascinating day here in Cape Town with Malan Conradie at the Hysucat (Hydrofoil Boats International) factory. Mike G, you would be drooling..... just being finished is a 42ft Hysucat hard boat for a buyer in America. There is an unbelievable attention to detail, the likes I have never seen from any SA builder (makes me proud). I am talking about the sort of finish you would expect in a Fairline or Princess. We spoke about a large 12m+ Cabin rib, cat and hydrofoil of course and this is something already being designed. Take a look at this site, http://www.hydrofoildesign.com/media...cation2Web.htm
for the serious techie stuff - interesting reading. I will post pictures when I am back in the UK because this dial-up is way too slow.
