There are few of them. if you google "The Central Design Bureau of Hydrofoils" you'll get tons of good links. The attached pic is one of my favorites. It holds the speed record of 350mph over water. Here are some good links too;

Would be sweet! I can only imagine how loud those 8 pure jets must be spooled up next to your head. They're mounted on 1 pylon about 6 feet behind the cockpit! Look out Calan

I have a friend involved with this one in the US:

Sea Phantom Powerboats Link

They are in the testing stages now. They boat broke 80 this week and they expect to exceed 100 with a one 2.5 Merc Outboard...

Be sure to view th whole album. The link is at the bottom of the Sea Phantom page.

Really cool stuff!

they sound a lot like the Ruskies in the 60's through 80's, tell the world you are in mass production of ______ ______ , its indestructible and is capable of _______, never mind none of it true. I'm sure the US Navy is amused. Nothing more than a way to convince the local towel heads that they are safe from the big bad ol USA
