Abstract
The design requirements and philosophy are described for a small, stable, high-powered craft for use as an experimental hydrodynamics research facility. The design concept evolved from requirements peculiar to the experience, environment, and resources of a small research laboratory and the result is a unique facility, tailored primarily for high-speed marine propulsion experiments, but with potential for much broader application. It is capable of operating at slow speeds as a displacement boat, at moderate speeds in a planing mode and at high speeds as a hydrofoil craft.
