Question:
If I were to just tie the ScubaJet to the bottom of my current hydrofoil with tape.. Literally to the fuselage under the wings.. Would it kill all the lift?
Or would I in-effect, be able to ride it as e-foil? We can see that LiftFoil guys, have the propeller sitting above the wings. So I wonder if tying it under the wings, would disrupt the water flow and not allow it to foil any more.

Interesting that the motor/propeller is above the foil. So you breach the propeller and lose thrust, but don't breach the foil and come down off the foil.

Has anyone seen video of anyone starting from a dead stop on one of these things?
