Here is an unusual subject. 
A true boat on skis - not a hydrofoil!
The bits that look like wings are shields to stop spray from getting into the prop.

Get ready for take-off!

The boat lifts itself on to the skis.

This boat does not care if the water is frozen.


A pair of experimental stepped-hull hydroplane powerboats provided some wacky racing fun back in the 1980's.  Almost uncontrollable!
