PMU needs to get some new material. Esp. with regard to racing which is all foil on foil these days.

BREAKING NEWS!
PMU's ultra-secret project for a hydrofoil has just been leaked.


Here attached are the advanced plans for a hydrodynamically superior hydrotube (all rights reserved), as he called his "invention" after having dropped all references to the notion of "foil".

Pmu.....
I will start and finish by calling you out on one point....

L/D!

You explained shit! You just said one has more drag than the other (with nothing but uninformed illeducated opinion). But what about the lift part? Or maybe explain it correctly as in what L/D actually means. Then tell me how inflatables are superior over closed cell ram air race foil kites?
Then explain to everyone how paraglider design is going towards lei kite design?

I suggest you delete that folder on your desk top that you use to cut n paste the utter drivel you spent way too much time on just to use every 4 weeks.

It doing you no favours.

Too much for my attention span (I think I have a USA gene) did he mention his shaft and lubricating it?

Here's my question...How come those guys aren't on Ram air kites if they are supposed to be better ? :jump:

( Keep the shaft clean without lube...put a thin layer of white lithium grease on the piston and inside cylinder tube )

:pump:

Yikes !! ( :( small shaft for sure ) ...............99 % prefer looking at strapless riding using popular safe inflatos
