    I thought I posted pics or videos about this before, but I don't see any threads specifically related to it. Anyway, I built a 20' copy of the 1990's prototype of L'Hydroptere a few years ago.

I'm posting this now because my neighbor just gave me a CD of pictures of a friend and I out on it one nice summer day. They're pretty good. I cropped and resized them. See below. Also, here's a link to an onboard video from 2 viewpoints:
