There was a time when I was a boy . . . I thought that hydrofoils would dominate the future.  They didn’t.  My question is:  does anyone recall a hydrofoil operating in the waters around greater NYC?  This just in from a jolly tar, a British film clip that alludes to but seems not to show a hydrofoil on Long Island Sound . . .  ??

The foto below taken in heavy rain just east of the Astoria-Megler Bridge–north side–shows the remains of Plainview AGEH-1.   Here’s a video of AGEH-1 under way.


Here’s a year’s worth of links on hydrofoils.  And some more . . .
