A wind powered air/water interface craft disposed in a mechanically simple configuration(s) with a control for trimming and/or adjusting the area of the various air and water foil elements either independently or together or both. All of its structural elements are useful as lifting or driving surfaces or buoyant elements thereby minimizing parasitic drag and conflicting forces. In some configurations, free flight is also possible for brief periods of time or for longer periods in conditions where dynamic soaring is possible. The rig is able to develop v...
[ I claim:] [1.] A wind-powered air-water interface craft, comprising:a fuselage comprising a planing hull form, said fuselage having a longitudinal centerline, and having a datum waterplane which is parallel to and at the waterline of the fuselage when the fuselage is upright, the hull form is afloat and no wind load is incident on said craft;a first pivot axis providing means supported on said fuselage so as to be generally vertical and located in vertical registration with said longitudinal centerline when said fuselage is upright;a first yoke pivotal...
