This paper describes the use of gas-turbine propulsion systems in hydrofail seacraft. Background information on the early hydrofoil developments is presented, as well as discussions of the factors affecting choice of power plants, economics of operation, and the practical considerations involved with respect to marine environments, installation requirements, and engine characteristics. Descriptions of turbine-powered hydrofoil craft are also included.
