Retrofit on a Hobie 14? No. For a lot of reasons.

That site is a bit sketchy. Homebuilt.

Dr. Bradfield has been messing about with foilers for many years. He just launched a new one.

Not a 14, but Dave Carlson has had an 18 foiler for many years.

They have the same problems as the TriFoilers Some time in the future these will work better.

Seems like a fine idea....as long as you have a crane to lift your boat in and out of the water.
