A watercraft capable of operating in hydrofoil mode or ground-effect mode with self-righting retractable V-shaped foil, fiberoptic control systems, and a plurality of aircraft style engines with variable pitch propellers for speed and direction control. The V-shaped foil can be fully retracted into the hull allowing operation in shallow water, and the ability to execute a beach landing. Propeller pitch can be reversed allowing the craft to backup. Each engine and propeller can be controlled individually allowing rotating in-place for precise maneuvering ...
The invention claimed is: 1. A high-speed watercraft comprising: a hull having an exterior that is substantially the shape of an airfoil, said hull having a front and a rear; a pair of struts being located at said rear of said hull, a pair of nacelles being secured to said pair of struts, each one of said pair of nacelles including a rear facing propeller, each of said propellers including variable pitch, said propellers enabling in-place rotation of said watercraft; a pair of elevators extending from a rear edge of said hull; a fly-by fiber control sys...
