    You are right for the the AC Class, although the hull hydrodynamics and righting moment capacity is involved in the take off phase. For an oceanic Mini650, full flying is a bonus in certain favorable circumstances, ideally beam reaching with sufficient wind and moderate sea state. Otherwise, the foils can assist or be retractable (or put up vertically in the case of Pogo Foiler), and the hull should do its job.

    True, the english made something that doesn't even look like a conventional boat.
    But if you like scows, and most people do, it's a fast and aerodynamic hull shape.
    That explains it's succes.

    I like scows. I commented on the post about a foiler, where it seems like the hull shape is not as relevant as long as it gets to a minimum speed for a short period.
