Lightbulb Single strut Hydrofoil

Hi,

Is there anyone here who has experience with building submerged foil Hydrofoils?

I am currently in the early stages of trying to build a single strut Hydrofoil on the lines of the OU-32 designed by Kotaro Horiuchi.

The principle is two hydrofoils (single strut refers to the fact the struts (2) are in line, so only one strut is seen from the bow or stern), a fixed rear foil and an adjustable angle steerable front foil, so the boat rides like a bicycle.

See my ramblings on http://myhydrofoil.co.uk, I would welcome any advice / comments.
