Funny you mention aircraft-like redundancy. The control pistons on Hydroptere's foils are developed from the landing gear on Dassault Aircraft's Rafale jet fighter.

I lubs that video.

IMO, if it's a boat powered by the wind on a sail, it's sailing.

My preference is being down on the water but I wouldn't mind taking a moth out once or twice and I'd crap my pants if I got a ride on the L’Hydroptère.

wonder what happens when one of those wingtips encounters and eight or ten foot wave while skimming along at about a foot or so off the surface?
