I like this invention. Not from fuel point of view but looks like smoother ride and softer against waves. Will love to see more movies offshore or with waves. My only concerns: how to tow such boat ? RIB is well know as boat safe to dock to another boat. These items reach out of the tube range. It could be the problem. Many modern race sailboats use such solution. Is it require to mount engine lower than usually ? Or just add something to prevent spray ? The hull of the RIB looks like ALU. Is it really GRP model ?

Al Samuelson says:

Robbie, at this point I agree. But…I can see them used to bring the hull part-way out to reduce drag. This could be a great tool to increase efficiencies. Thanks for posting.

Pardon my ignorance but….
…isn’t this just a re-make of a “hydrofoil” …??

and Boeing had a big one going back to 1976…

The YouTube Critic says:

I really hope that this is just an early prototype. Those foils seem to have no stability control (neither a submerged control surface appendage nor a surface-piercing foil). It is basically just a seesaw. The waves bounce the bow and stern up and down uncontrollably. Not ready for market.

Robbie Surfer says:

Unnecessary, dangerous, unstable, pointless, not needed and probably not wanted
