davem: Enrico Forlanini Hydrofoil

"The first hydrofoil was designed and built by Italian engineer Enrico Forlanini. It used a ladder system of foils and a 60 hp engine driving two counter-rotating air props. During testing in 1906, the craft reached a top speed of 42.5 mph." http://www.aae.uiuc.edu/cetan/
