    No keel to speak of. I thought the crew looked in better shape than I was at even 30 kt in a 3 m swell.

    Not catamarans.
    The current absolute record for sailing is about 66 kt.

    The Isle of Wight ferry.

    I assume that you're talking about the Hovercraft. I remember taking it years ago between Cowes and Southampton. Noisy.

    That would have to be a steam hovercraft to fit the joke, but I don't think Cockerell invented one.

    No, I meant the old ferry boat. The quip is at least as old as we are.

    It strikes me that hydrofoil sailing is one thing that we have not copied from animal nature. I don't think there are any foiling animals or insects. Sailors there are of course. But can you imagine, say, a hydrofoiling Portuguese Man-o-war jellyfish? Fleet?
