[quote="C A R A F I N O 2014"] Hydrofoil is & can be defined to be a one piece construction with different names for area. Like a house, it has rooms, bathrooms, kitchen, etc.

Hydrofoil defined as follows:

Strut- hydrofoil long shaft
Fuselage-the main body of an aircraft where the wings attach
Mounting plate (area) that mounts to board
Wings
screws/hardware, mounting wings to fuselage
screws/hardware, mounting strut to board/boat

ALSO; mast refers to anything above your head, like a flag pole, sail boat mast, etc. so this define is incorrect.

Keel refers to anything below the hull, so not accurate in this definition. As a keel does not have wings attach to it. It traditionally and accurately has a lead weight to provide balance to a ship for stability from/when heeling.

The proper definition for a hydrofoil is a strut. It may be helpful to reference a maritime dictionary as all our definitions are in nautical language and aeronautical.

hydrofoil |ˈhīdrəˌfoil|
noun
a boat whose hull is fitted underneath with shaped vanes (foils) that lift the hull clear of the water to increase the boat's speed.
hydrofoil

ORIGIN 1920s: from hydro- [relating to water]
