The Canadian navy tried hydrofoils in the 60's...
HMCS Bras d'Or (FHE 400) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Ordered by a Conservative government (Republicans) and cancelled by a Liberal government (Democrats).

Greetings,
Ahem....Members, pending members, potential members, aspiring members, honorable members, dishonorable members (well SOME of you), structural members, and dangling members of the TFHOF (Trawler Forum Hall of Fame)...(Pronounced "ta-foof as in saloon)
You're probably wondering why I have called you all here. Well, as the prenominal occupant of the TFHOF it behooves me to mention, what I see is a disturbing trend creeping into TF. A trend I myself recently succumbed to in the Good Engine, Bad Engine thread post #30...sorry, I panicked. Yes my brothers and sisters (BS), I stumbled.
Allow me to draw your attention to posts #382, #437 and #442. (Apologies Mr. Lurker, I don't mean to single you out. Yours is simply the most recent lurid example) Let us attempt to keep TF a family friendly site.
There should be enough of our BS about to apply a modicum of sympathetic, humble, intelligent, tact (SHIT) to those members whose pop-up advertisements consist of invitations to visit "Ass of the Mohicans, An officer and a Genitalman, Monty's Python and the Horny Male" or "Ordinary Peepholes". Not to mention "Romeo at Joliet".
Thank you for your time, patience and understanding. Remember BS and let's make that SHIT happen!

Really? What kind of rolling papers do you use, and how do you manage to spark it up?

RE the pic on post 432 (my I-pad only does certain things. It corrects most of my spelling though.

Now if GB (and the rest) made their twins like this and put the same amount of power in both singles and twins we could compare them and learn which is more efficient. They no doubt thought it was too much trouble .. Money.

Heavy reverse throttle on the stbd eng, half throttle ahead w full right rudder and this guy would come very close to revolving in it's own length.

Well up the coast, I assure you, and I never partake in that reefer madness. There are these cute little mushrooms however, that give a particular scintillating sparkle to ones day...
