Has anyone tried these airfoils in hydrofoils?

Maybe 10 years ago a British dinghy was developed with a daggerboard T-foil derived from or similar to to a KF foil. Went nowhere. I don't think it was fast. Not sure if it worked well or not aside from being slow.
The idea was to avoid the dramatic crashes of conventional foils on breaching or ventilating. I've never heard any other use of it in watercraft.
