Flying Colours, a Dutch tandem pedal powered hydrofoil which hangs from the ceiling in the Mechanical / Marine Written by Malin Dixon:

Engineering building at the Technical University Delft located in Delft, The Netherlands.

A sign hanging from the craft reads:-

Flying Colours
Human Powered Flapless Hydrofoil
Speed: 15 knots
Weight: 33 kg
Length: 6.00m
Year: 1991
Designed and Built by: Delft Waterbike Technology.
I suspect it is actually a student design project.

I photographed it from various angles including of various key details when I visited there earlier in June 2007. There are sufficient views that anyone could almost scale off some plans from the photos and build a replica for their own use!
