Hydrofoil Retrofit for Small Power Boats

Their website doesn't exist so I'm guessin' this is a hoax.

Project under development by Northwest Hydrofoils.

A 28' Bayliner with a surface piercing hydrofoil system that increases efficiency by 40+%.

See our site,, for more information.

Yours Aye! Rick
