    Stephen Walker from Ahoy Boats has put up a video of their new production multihull availability for 2013. The interesting point for me is that Catri is back releasing a new model the Catri 25 I thought they were kaput but apparently they have new management and are going to release a new model.

    I noticed that he said the new Catri "will be 100% hydrofoil". Do you think that means it will fly above the water? Catri foils were excellent "foil assist" and maybe the guy is going all the way?

    I don't know but the video certainly gives that impression. The rudders look like Y foils so you would think it should be able to fly with some stability.
