  1. Hydrofoils were another larry light bulb scheme that didn’t work out. I remember bumping a log doing 5 knots while Courtney was in the Med and there were articles in “All Hands” about hydrofoils. I asked the XO (also the Navigator) what he thought would happen if we had been aboard a hydrofoil and hit that log at 50 knots. he winced and left it at that.

  2. The hydrofoil attack boat concept was fine… for some navies, just not the US Navy. Then again, that is the same navy with a long history of like/dislike cycles dating back to 1805 regarding small patrol vessels.
