I remember something like the Dynafoil in the 80's called a Wetbike that was on the lakes around here. Different brand and Im not sure who the exact maker was but basically the same design principal. Like you, I'm not sure why it didn't take off and become more popular.

It was very cool and rock solid at speed. No high speed shakes at all. Really an interesting ride. As would be expected, rough water wouldn't have the slightest affect upon it. The other thing I really liked about it was well it performed in turns. I can still remember throwing it in to a turn while at WOT. The "wings" wouldn't/couldn't slide out from under you so you'd find yourself changing direction in an incredibly short amount of space. If you kept the throttle twisted all the way open during such a maneuver, the engine would keep revving while the prop was trying to hook up. Then, once it did, a quick yank on the handlebars would bring the front strut out of the water and you could ride the equivalent of a wheelie for a decent distance before it came back down. A real blast!

That one reminded me of the Dynafoil I had for a few yrs when I lived in CA. An incredible PWC that was ahead of its time when introduced in the '70's. Too bad it never caught on.

I just watched this video and thought I'd start a thread featuring links to impressive boat related videos. Here's a link to the one that gave me the idea. Enjoy!
