Pontoon Hydrofoil Applications Inc
Longtime 1970 boater, sailboat racer, boat builder, boat speed modifier/blueprinter, and designer Mike Gable desired to purchase a pontoon boat, but DID NOT want that standard pontoon boat ride. The platform of a pontoon boat is a great idea: Roomy, trailerable, stable and fishable while carrying many passengers. However, these platforms were historically slow before the addition of Larger Heavier 4 stroke Motors, rode low to the water, noisy as they were at 3/4-full throttle most of the time, and just not that efficient for a longer distance ride and as they lacked fuel economy. Knowing his longtime boat racing and designer peers would never expect to see him on a pontoon boat, Mike drew up an idea for a pontoon hydrofoil on a napkin.
