Peter I am with you on the little wings. Hope to get into the hydrofoil biz this year. Do you have a specific manufacturer in mind?

But you can not have it all in one wing, no matter how much we want that
Cavitaion isn't caused by speed, it's caused by low pressure. If you are getting the same lift out of a smaller wing, you're going to have lower pressure on the top of the foil. So you can't just go smaller and smaller, at some point you're asking too much of too small of an area, pressure will be too low and you get cavitation.edt wrote:if you have cavitation or ventilation problems it is a flaw in the design. For instance Hering propellers can go above 100 knots without cavitation problems.
