    How about when you hit a sand bar at speed w/ the boat completely out of the water.

    Dyanfoil's were probably the most high tech water toy ever built. Our tax dollars developed them for the military. ( I did not look at the web site yet) They were released for civilian use in the late 70's and are awsome. You can ride them 45 mph to Catalina in the worst conditions. The way the upper foil on the front reads the water surface and controls the lower foil to keep them stable. They can haul ass, stop and turn on a dime. I used to ride for Kawasaki in the development of the jet ski, and was fortunate enough to get a chance to ride the dynafoil's for about two years. The prop looks scary, but you would never get close to it. The lower unit is engaged with a dead man foot pedal in the right foot well. You have to have weight on it for the prop to spin. If you fell off the dynafoil the prop stops immediately, kind of like the blade on a miter saw.

    They would never tell us what the intended use was, but we assumed it was for Navy seals or something like that. I think the technology may be in use on some of the navy large hydrofoil boats.

    I found two abandoned ones about 5 years ago in the storage yard at Aha Quin, but couldn't locate the owner. If you could buy a new one I would get one.

    Don't get all technical and come in here with first hand knowledge of something. You'll take all the bashing away from the folks that just don't get it.

    I sort of forgot about them until I saw the post. Now I think it would be fun to find one and restore it. Just an incredible toy for big nasty water, and the ride is smooth.

    I watched all the videos on the webpage. Unfortunately the one thing that would've impressed me (rough water abilities) was not included in the video.'

    They're neat as a nostalgic/novelty thing, but other than that it wouldn't interest me personally. Then again...........I'm not a fan of jetskis either.

    I remember back in 1969 seeing Bombardier (seadoo) testing the first jetski on a little lake in the Upper Penninsula of Michingan. They were powered by a 10 hp air cooled rotax single cylinder snowmobile engine. I was just a kid at the time (50 now) but I remember at the time they were so underpowered that they had to get their body stretched way out over the front cowling and bounce on the thing to get it to plane out. Once they got em going they moved along alright.

    I know not related, just something that this deal sparked a memory of.
