INTERNATIONAL HYDROFOIL SOCIETY'S ALBUMS > C - HPH using temporary engines, Dwight Filley & Steve Ball, --one VIDEO + PHOTOS
This is an ongoing testing program for Dwight and Steve. They both have designed boats that fly using engines. Steve is gas powered and Dwight is battery powered. The engines produce more power than either rider, but when the designs have been perfected, a top performing athlete will be recruited and we will see how fast a human powered hydrofoil can really go. Remember, the world speed record of 18.5 knots was set by pilot/designer Mark Drela, a university professor, not a professional athlete.
