And made by Boeing!

There used to be Hydrofoils running back and forth from Southampton to Cowes prior to the red jet cats, but they were the oul Russian fellas.

I never understand how those foils stay put! They look like they'd snap off if they hit an object in the water.
 
they dont even look raked in any way to the direction of the force do they!
 
We used to have hydrofoils running between the Islands right up until the late 80's. Bloody awful they were when they came off the foils and stuffed into a wave. They used to be called the puke foil ferries.........
