Hmm I wonder if Defender sells that ASROC, would be handy ensuring I got a good spot in a crowded anchorage. Wife ruled out a cannon.

Probably wouldn't need to actually launch one.

Hopefully not but it would certainly garner respect. I got an ASROC and I ain't afraid to use it. Of course I could just launch an unruly guest if needed.

I'd like to know who the "private owners" following Boeing were and what they've done or attempted to accomplish with her. I'll bet there's a good story there.

Was talking to a fellow the other day who ripped the leg off the back of his boat after hitting a log while on plane...something to think about!

I cruised past a large floating piling in a channel earlier this year definitely would have caused damage if someone hit that. Called it in to marine patrol and CG.

"50 knot trawler"
Hauling a seine at 50knots. Now that is impressive

An interesting aside. My uncle, Ed Czarnecki was, I believe, at one point in charge of the Boeing military hydrofoil projects, primarily the Pegasus class. He died in the late 70's or early 80's. I lived with him and his family when I started law school in 1974 and heard lots of stories about the program. He was a huge fan of hydrofoils. He and his brother Kaz graduated from the U of Alabama in what I have heard, was one of the first aeronautical engineering programs back in the late 30's. Kaz went on to work his entire career with Nasa and was the model for Karl Zielinski in the movie "hidden figures". Quite a family..until I came along.

Curious about the power. One 450 hp Detroit doesn't seem like it could be the original engine. The wiki has it as powered by a GE gas turbine - you think that is still in the spares locker?

Did a little more reading. That photo of the ASROC launch is described as occurring near Nanoose BC. Almost certainly in Area WG, so familiar to many of us.

Significant draft lf moving "on the hull." Not something one would want on many sloughs of the San Francisco delta.

In the early 80's they tried running the Boeing built hydrofoils between Seattle and Victoria, BC. When they worked it was a much faster trip than the traditional ferry service. However, they often hit things that damaged the foils. Then the trip was slower than the other ferry.

They also tried them from Vancouver to Victoria.

The Boeing designed hydrofoils are still used in Asia.
