Hydrofoil Boats

In 1908, Boats were co-invented by Alexander Graham Bell & Casey Baldwin.

The American Department of War had called for proposals to build submarine chasers in the form of motorboats. Bell argued that a hydrofoil was the better choice, it could skim over a mine-infested bay in the same way that a skitterbug moves across a pond.
