Hi shipmates, has anyone ever made a hydrofoil for a model boat,
I have got a wooden fire /sea rescue boat single screw which to me seems about right for a hydrofoil system.
So where do I start ????? any ideas ?

I have just had a set of plans printed for a hydrofoil.

But for speed and lightness I was going to use plastic.

The only other that may suit that sort of hull is a Russian Hydrofoil Fast Antisubmarine Ship

I intend to use the boat as I haven't seen any hydrofoils on the pond but plenty of fire boats. Are there any plans available?

You're welcome!
I stumbled on the site while looking for the old German hydrofoil model that was offered here a while ago. All very interesting but I've got my hands full refitting my existing fleet! Will watch progress with great interest👍
Good luck, Doug 😎

Hi onetenner, I don't follow as to what you mean in that last post, would you mind clarifying.

Thanks.

Hi Steve
I do believe onetenor was having problems using the URL addresses posted in this blog and elsewhere on the site. Advice on copying and pasting has been given in another post, and even better Stephen (Fireboat) is altering the website coding to allow automatic recognition of URLs so the problem will disappear.
Hopefully the very useful links suggested will help you decide how to proceed with your boat. A build blog would be welcome.
Good luck
Dave

Hi Dave I am utterly lost I have no idea how to cut and paste let alone a URL ! I will be going thro the links/sites suggested but a blog could be a long way away. I tend to look thro ideas turn them over pick out the best bits suitable for the application and my dexterity.
Thanks for your concern.
Steve.
