    Prototype Singlehanded Hydrofoil Catamaran/ Kotaro Horiuchi

    Interesting prototype information -and fairly detailed for anyone contemplating a similar idea:

    In an amazing combination of circumstances I've found out a lot more about the designer of this boat. Marco, a contributor to these forums sent me a couple of pictures of one of the most incredible trimaran hydrofoils I've ever seen! It was designed by Kotaro Horiuchi as was 'Twin Ducks'(above). Unfortunately, I can't post the pictures but I have written to Mr. Horiuchi for details as well as to invite him to this forum. When you finally see the trimaran pictures you will be astounded! It is simply the most exciting multifoiler I've seen yet. At any rate I didn't know he was the designer of Twin Ducks or anything about him; read this:

    Are there any photos of Mr. Horiuchi's new trimaran foiler on the web?
