That's an interesting concept. It would allow nothing in the water but
the wheel. Perhaps the powertrain could be on the same platform as the
wheel assembly and pivot that way. I wonder how far the pivot range
would have to be to give good steering control.

- Here's 'Red Racer' a PDRacer #38, tow-planing?
Or howsabout Skimmer? With 4 aboard you wouldn't want more'n 2HP,
and her performance under 7ft oars would never be sparkling, but
empty at 8 knots she'd have to plane, wouldn't she? What total
displacement is she rated for? Have a look at the rest of photo
