I was living in Key West when the entire squadron of 6 PHM (Patrol / Hydrofoil / Missile) were stationed there. These were freaking awesome machines, big gun in a turrent forward, Harpoon missiles, top speed classified but 50 knots + on a 133' ship!

When they were being decommissioned the had a kind of farewell and the last one to leave went through Key West Harbor foilborne.

Nice to see one survive and be repurposed.

Navy experimented with a number of different Hydrofoil boats. Both Boeing and Grumman dabbled with them.

This is an old PR video of some of the different boats and explains the technology if you're interested.
