Very interesting, thanks for posting it. Do you think this *CAT tech can size up for large boats?

Looks cool and all but probably an very complex system. Just one more thing to go wrong on a power boat which already has a myriad of things that can go wrong as it is. I'd say if your hurling over the side every time you hit the water you better take up golf.

Suspension

Thank you for sharing the thread. There are a lot of patents to be found when you google especially these small watercraft: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OUjAs3_GmX4.

I suppose suspensions on cars were initially considered "complex".
They will get better if they really have an application.

I'd go for skis instead of hulls, with a hull as backup for when going slow or stopped of course.

MAYBE Vee-hull skis, but probably flat, since they'd be sprung.

Sprung to Un-Sprung weight ratio is everything, and that craft looks like its got a lot of unsprung weight..
