Aries

III

(PHM-5: dp. 214 (f.); 1. 133'0"; b. 18'0"; dr. 6'0"; s. 51 k.; cpl. 21; a. 1 76mm., 8 Harpoon; cl. Pegasus)

The third Aries (PHM-5) was laid down on 7 January 1980 at Seattle (Renton), Wash., by Boeing Marine Systems; launched on 5 November 1981; sponsored by Mrs. Earl B. Fowler, the wife of Vice Admiral Earl B. Fowler, Commander, Naval Sea Systems Command; and was commissioned at the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard on 18 September 1982, Lt. Comdr. Carl E. Weiscopf in command.

Aries operated in Puget Sound until 23 November when she got underway for Key West, Fla., her assigned home port. She made calls at San Francisco and San Diego on her way down the California coast. The guided-missile hydrofoil gunboat transited the Panama Canal on 11 December and arrived in Key West on the 15th. After the holidays, the warship began operations from her base. Acceptance trials came late in January 1983, and, in February, she carried out her first law enforcement operation against drug smugglers in cooperation with the Coast Guard. arch and April brought, training duty out of Key West and two more missions assisting the Coast Guard in its efforts to stem the flow of illegal drugs into the United States. In each instance, Aries embarked a detachment of Coast Guardsmen and carried out the assignment under the operational control of the Commandant, Coast Guard District 7, based at Miami, Fla. Early in May, she entered the yard at Atlantic Drydock in Jacksonville, Fla., for six weeks of post-shakedown repairs and modifications. Halfway through June, the guided-missile hydrofoil gunboat returned to Key West and resumed a normal schedule of duty out of her home port. Though the bulk of her operations for the rest of the year consisted of routine training evolutions, tests, and equipment calibrations and checks, Aries participated in another antismuggling sweep during the second week in August and visited Nassau in the Bahamas later that month.

Normal duty in the waters near Key West kept Aries busy for the remainder of 1983 and during the first few weeks of 1984. In February of 1984, the warship expanded her sphere of operations to include the Gulf of Mexico and the east coast of Central America. Late in April, she participated in Exercise "Ocean Venture 84" and, in May, visited New Orleans for the world's fair. Aries returned to Key West for normal operations at the end of May and the beginning of June. On 11 June, however, she departed Key West for the waters around Puerto Rico to participate in the initial phase of UNITAS XXV, the 1984 edition of the annual series of multilateral exercises carried out with units of various Latin American navies. At the end of June, the guidedmissile hydrofoil gunboat proceeded back to Key West to resume normal duty. In August, Aries took part in maneuvers conducted off the east coast of Central America. Back at Key West at the end of August, she began operating again on a training schedule.

The guided-missile hydrofoil gunboat spent the rest of 1984 and the first part of 1985 engaged in operations in the immediate vicinity of Key West. In March, she traveled to Puerto Rico to participate in a readiness exercise, READEX 1-85. More duty out of her home port occupied the warship's time in April. At the beginning of May, she voyaged to Onslow Beach, N.C., where she took part in Exercise "Solid Shield 85." The middle of June found Aries in the waters near Puerto Rico again for the initial phase of UNITAS XXVI. During July and early August, the warship carried out normal operations from her base at Key West. Her third fleet readiness exercise occupied the last half of August. In September, Aries resumed local operations from Key West and remained so occupied for the rest of 1985.

At the end of the first week in January 1986, she moved to Mayport, Fla., for a three-month availability. At the end of April, she proceeded back to Key West whence she operated until late in July. At that time, she embarked upon a cruise that took her to the Caribbean for another UNITAS exercise during which she made port calls at La Guaira, Venezuela, and at St. John's, Antigua. Aries returned to Key West on 14 August and carried out local training missions until mid-October. On 14 October, the guided-missile hydrofoil gunboat set sail for Little Creek, Va., to take part in a special project for the Chief of Naval Operations. Over the next two months, she divided her time between her home port and operations off the Virginia capes. She concluded her development work for 1986 on 12 December and headed back to Key West on the 16th. Aries reentered her home port on 17 December and spent the remainder of the year in that vicinity. As of the beginning of 1987, she was in port at Key West.


USS Aries (PHM-5)

USS Aries (PHM-5) was the fifth ship of her class of hydrofoils operated by the United States Navy. Pegasus class vessels were designed for high speed and mobility, and carried a powerful (for their size) armament. Aries was named for the constellation.

Aries was laid down on 7 January 1980 at Renton, Seattle, Washington, by Boeing Integrated Defense Systems, launched on 5 November 1981, sponsored by Mrs. Earl B. Fowler, the wife of Vice Admiral Earl B. Fowler, Commander, Naval Sea Systems Command, and was commissioned at the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard on 18 September 1982, Lieutenant Commander Carl E. Weiscopf in command.

In the late 1960s, NATO developed a requirement for a small, fast warship to counter large numbers of Warsaw Pact missile boats, such as the Komar and Osa classes, deciding that a hydrofoil would be the best way to meet this requirement. In 1970 Admiral Elmo Zumwalt, the new Chief of Naval Operations (CNO), keen to increase the Navy's number of surface vessels in a cost-effective manner, committed the United States to the NATO program for a hydrofoil. The U.S. Navy proposed the PHM design as a NATO standard, with the program being led by the U.S. Navy, and an order placed for two prototypes in 1972. [1] The Italian Navy and the West German Bundesmarine signed letters of intent to participate in the programme, with other NATO navies, including the Royal Navy and Canadian Forces studying the project. [2] The U.S. Navy planned to buy up to 30 PHMs, with 10 to be purchased by West Germany and four by Italy. [2] [3] [4]

After Zumwalt's retirement, the Navy chose to funnel most of the money for the PHMs into larger vessels. This delayed the ongoing construction of Pegasus, and the other vessels were not started. Congress eventually forced the Navy to complete the vessels. The difficulties in project progression forced the other involved navies to abort their participation.

The Pegasus-class ships were powered by two 800 horsepower (600 kW) twin turbo-charged Mercedes-Benz diesel engines when waterborne, using water jets (designed by Aerojet), [5] giving them a speed of 12 knots (22 km/h 14 mph). When foilborne, the ships were powered by a General Electric LM2500 gas turbine and a very large water jet, giving them a speed of over 48 knots (89 km/h 55 mph).

Pegasus ships were well armed for their size, carrying two four-rack RGM-84 Harpoon anti-ship missiles and an Oto Melara 76 mm gun. The Harpoons, specifically, were capable of sinking far larger ships at distances in excess of 60 nautical miles (110 km). The West German version would have carried the MM38 Exocet.

As Pegasus was constructed several years before the rest of the series, there are some slight differences, such as the fire-control system.

All six vessels were constructed by Boeing, in Seattle at the Renton plant at the south end of Lake Washington. They were stationed at NAS Key West. Principal contractors, along with Boeing, were Sperry Corporation for MK 92 Mod 1 fire control system, Hollandse Signaalapparaten and Sperry Corp. (under license) for WM 28 fire control system, OTO-Melara for 76 mm gun, and NAVSEC for design support. [6]

The technology was first pioneered by USS Tucumcari (PGH-2) , where it successfully operated in Vietnam, but ultimately ran aground off Puerto Rico. It was judged to be more advanced than the Grumman Flagstaff which was built at the same time to the same requirements. The primary technology, also used in the Boeing Jetfoil ferries, used submerged flying foils with waterjet propulsion.

The ships were retired because they were not judged cost effective for their mission in a Navy with primarily offensive missions rather than coastal patrol. USS Aries PHM-5 Hydrofoil Memorial, Inc. obtained Aries for rehabilitation as a memorial located on the Grand River in Brunswick, Missouri at 39°25′15″N 93°7′47″W  /  39.42083°N 93.12972°W  / 39.42083 -93.12972 . All other PHMs in the class were sold for scrap. In the early 2000s Gemini was converted into a yacht, but was abandoned by its owners in the 2010s and scrapped in 2017. [7]

USS Aries was home-ported in Key West for most of her 11 years of service. She conducted law enforcement operations against smugglers in cooperation with the Coast Guard in the Gulf of Mexico and the east coast of Central America. She took part in various fleet exercises including the “Ocean Venture” and “Solid Shield” series. She also participated in a number of UNITAS exercises with Central and South American Navies. She and the other five ships of the class were decommissioned in 1993 with the downsizing of the U.S. Navy fleet.

Aries is now located on the Grand River Waterfront in Brunswick, Missouri. Restoration efforts are ongoing. She opened for public tours in October 2002.


Our HISTORY

The roots of Aries go back to the mid-1960s when the founder experimented with 8mm movie cameras and found a way to take photos one frame at a time. This led to the creation of an underground sewer pipe inspection service making use of this invention. This service was incorporated as Photo Inspection Corporation, PIC, and performed sewer inspections throughout the Midwest. This work demonstrated to municipalities and contractors the tremendous value of internal inspection of sewer systems. PIC was eventually sold.

Then in the 1980s, substantial improvements in video technology including video recording and miniature video cameras led to a renewed interest in underground inspection equipment by the founders, now using video rather than film. This time the focus was on the hardware and supporting equipment and Aries was born.


USN – Retired Patrol Vessels

USS Gallup PG-85 artwork Courtesy of the Naval History and Heritage Command NH 85570-KN (author not known) These are likely USS Chehalis (1969) and USS Grand Rapids (1977), both recently sold, with ex-USS Chehalis scrapped.

USS Canon PG-90 (1968-1977) Served in Vietnam and was extensively damaged by shore based rockets. Laid up in Philadelphia Inactive Ships Facility, currently on hold for possible preservation.

USS Canon PG-90 is inboard of a slightly longer, very similar patrol vessel, whose dimensions are roughly 188′ long by 25′ maximum beam. The vessel is virtually identical in the bows and bridge, lengthened on the quarterdeck/stern with what appears to be a large, rectangular funnel, suggesting different propulsion. The vessel appears to be some type of Asheville variant, or export model, such as a PSMM Mark 5 built for South Korea or Taiwan, but lengthened beyond what other sources suggest. Given the 3󉐞 caliber deck gun, it seems to be Tacoma built. If so, all missile armaments and fittings behind the funnel have been removed.

USS Aries PHM-5 (1982-1993) currently attempts are being made to create a hydrofoil museum with several preserved craft. Vessels originally armed with a 76mm gun and harpoon missile racks for 8 missiles on the stern.

Aries has her bow and stern foils folded up out of the water, and all armament removed.

USS Gemini PHM-6 (1982-1993) retired near Wilmington NC, purchased by private owners who converted it in 2006 to a private yacht. Sold again and came back to same location by 2009. In 2011 was abandoned on site, and owner had it scrapped 2014. A youtube video shows conversion views [link].

It is possible this is former USS Gemini PHM-6 undergoing conversion to yacht Gemini. 3 years after leaving the scrapyard where she was rebuilt, Gemini returned to the same area near Wilmington NC. Gemini shows considerable work to her topsides to transform the vessel into a yacht. Features included a jet-ski stern deck, a jacuzzi, and two-level observation deck. She also had updated diesel engines. Of these four Pegasus class retired hydrofoils, only ex-USS Gemini initially avoided scrapping, being converted to a yacht.

USS Plainview AGEH-1 (1969-1978) unique hydrofoil. LOA 220′ TDISP 310 tons. Scrapping at Hungry Harbor WA, ongoing for many years.

USS High Point PCH-1 (1963-1980) first US Navy hydrofoil. LOA 115′ TDISP 110 tons Under restoration near Astoria, OR, for preservation as museum ship.


Cimarron-class fleet replenishment oiler

The Cimarron class was a class of five replenishment oilers which served in the United States Navy between 1981 and 1999. These ships were sized to provide two complete refuelings of a fossil-fueled aircraft carrier and six to eight accompanying destroyers. All five of the class were jumboized in 1990-92 by being cut in two and a 108-foot section inserted, increasing their capacities from 120.000 bbls to 180.000 bbls, adding capacity for 300 tons of munitions and improving underway replenishment capabilities. The class was retired in 1998-99 after less than 20 years of service as a result of post-Cold War force reductions, and the advent of the more economical diesel-powered Henry J. Kaiser -class oilers.

Aries & Aquarius Trust

Trust is an important issue for Aries and Aquarius can understand that. This doesn&rsquot mean they will be faithful to their Aries partner forever, but they would think it is fair to keep an open relationship and tell them about their indiscretions. Unfortunately, Aries is ruled by Mars and needs to be the only one in the world that their partner ever lays eyes on. This could turn them into an angry, possessive person who obsesses about the movements of their partner.

When we are discussing matters of trust between them that don&rsquot include other people, it is safe to say that they don&rsquot have a problem. They both simply don&rsquot understand why they would lie when there are so many interesting truths to discover. They need to be free to speak their mind and accept that they will never avoid conflict, but that it can be used in a constructive way to better understand each other and strengthen their relationship.


  • The Sun forms a semi-square with Uranus this morning, stirring up some restlessness that may seem too generalized to put to productive use.
  • We may want to shake things up, make changes, and break the routine now.
  • However, we could also be tense if there are unexpected schedule changes or if we’re not in touch with what we need to change. It’s better to keep things simple.
  • Fortunately, today’s Pluto-Pallas sextile encourages strategy and insight. We are wise and willing to invest our energy into solving problems.
  • Our natural talents, as well as acquired resources, are highlighted and positive.
  • It’s a good time for healing, regenerative activities, particularly to do with the mind/thinking.
  • Today’s Libra Moon is cooperative, friendly, and gracious. We’re ready to meet each other halfway. We seek ways to blend, balance, and cooperate.

June 2021 Monthly Horoscope Overview for Aries:

There is a strong focus on connecting, learning, transportation, communications, and daily affairs this month, dear Aries. But, enjoying your home and personal life more fully can figure strongly as well. The Lunar Eclipse that occurred in the last week of May has prompted cravings for bigger things or some distance from the mundane affairs of your life, and you’ll be seeking some escapes from time to time.

Mercury is retrograde in your communications sector until the 22nd, and delays or misunderstandings can be notable. While there can be ups and downs and delays to manage, you’ll ultimately get to see which of your projects are genuinely viable and worth your effort. Try your best not to dwell on flaws and problems, and this can be a rewarding period when revisiting past projects or subjects of study can be satisfying.

You'll find that you're at your most fulfilled when you’re feeling better organized and disciplined. A significant idea or hunch sets you on a new path around the Solar Eclipse on the 10th. You may see an old project or problem in a new light. From this insight, an original or recycled interest or pursuit may emerge. There can be helpful reflections about your past or tricky topics, and you’ll do well for yourself by reviewing recent decisions and allowing yourself to process and digest matters.

The eclipse on the 10th brings new energy or directions to learning, commuting, sharing, and communicating. New means of communication or transportation can figure strongly for you. Mind you, brand new launches are not advisable just yet, but this doesn’t mean you can’t consider new approaches or lay the groundwork for new launches later. Eclipse power is solid and long-lasting. You might rediscover an old interest or conclude that something you’ve been pursuing is no longer up your alley. This can be the beginning of new thinking on learning pursuits and projects--ideas now can spark a long-term venture.

Venus transits your solar fourth house of home, family, and comfort from the 2-27. Mars is here until the 11th, and the Sun, from the 21st forward. These influences boost your personal life and improve your living conditions, arrangements, and relationships with loved ones. Nice opportunities can arise to bond with those closest to your heart. Opportunities for love and friendship may emerge close to home. Or, you bring more love, beauty, order, energy, and harmony to your domestic world. You might receive a gift–or give yourself one–that benefits the family or home.

You might put extra effort into improving or balancing the atmosphere, ambiance, or decor in your home, or you go the extra mile to make things easier and more peaceful with loved ones. It's also a good time for personal reflection.

On the 11th, Mars moves into your sector of joy, bringing your fiery and courageous ruling planet into your solar fifth house. It's a period of extra dynamism, stimulation, and action, particularly in your creative, entertainment, and romantic worlds. This more outgoing cycle brings smoother energy to most of your endeavors, as your direct approach tends to get you results. This improves further when Venus enters this sector on the 27th.

Saturn and Uranus return to form a square in mid-June, reigniting tensions related to shifting money sources or a changing attitude toward personal possessions. You can be anxious to expand and grow, but worries about resources or funding can undermine you. You might wrestle with wanting to take risks but fearing change.

The Sun moves into your home and family sector on the 20-21 for a month-long transit that is determined to see you rest and recuperate. It’s also a time for making improvements in your domestic world. With this transit, you can experience a strong sense of mutual harmony and a general boost in feelings of peace and security with and through others.

Mercury’s direct turn on the 22nd is another boost to clarity. It helps you clear up problems and find the answers you sought to issues raised earlier in the month. You can put some editing work behind you, or you get word that helps move things forward.

You also benefit from a boost to your health and wellness. The more you do your share, the greater your sense of wholeness and fulfillment. This is a time when you invest in yourself and the special people in your life.

There can be epiphanies related to your career, goals, aspirations, or reputation around the Full Moon on the 24th. There can be a call to manage or act, or you recognize the need for a better balance between your strong attention to your personal life and your attention to your responsibilities, career, long-term goals, or the outside world! You can make some beautiful and meaningful realizations about your life path or longer-term goals. If you’ve been ignoring or brushing aside your ambitions, you’ll feel the lack now.

Romantic or creative expression moves from slightly timid to wonderfully terrific around the 27th, when Venus moves out of your home sector and into your romance sector. This area of your solar chart rules self-expression, creativity, romance, children, entertainment, and other channels through which you express your need for play, reinforcement, and even applause, and any or all of these areas can benefit. It’s a time when you tend to follow your heart’s desire, not aggressively, but gently. As a result, you approach the world more creatively and romantically. In addition, you find more joy in leisure activities and hobbies.

This Year: Aries

2021 Yearly Horoscope Overview

The year 2021 brings a strong focus on your social life, networks, communication skills, and pet causes, dear Aries. This list includes your business goals or income for those in business for themselves. Team efforts or collaboration are in the spotlight.

Even so, you’re reorganizing and changing things up so that you can improve your friendships and connections–or your feeling of connectedness, in general. It’s about making room for connections, relationships, and projects that empower you rather than hold you back.

In a sense, you’re going through a clean-up or a period of fine-tuning in your social life so that you can live more authentically. The benefits of this reset are great, even if they’re not immediately apparent.

Your connections and networks can lead to meaningful new goals in 2021, or they can take you on a beneficial path. Friends can be of practical help to you. New long-term initiatives and exciting causes and missions are likely to emerge.

While there remains some pressure on your sector of career, reputation, accountability, and responsibility, there is far less of it in 2021. This year, you’re appreciated for how well you get along with others more than how you’re performing or what you’re accomplishing. This is a forward-moving, optimistic time, even if there will be times when you’re a little overscheduled in your social world.

It remains important to bring specialized focus to getting the career that truly suits you and for pushing your practical and professional interests forward. The good news is that you feel less restricted in these areas.

Eclipses encourage you to pay special attention to how you communicate, connect, and present your ideas. Polishing these things will go a long way towards your happiness and fulfillment. This can also be a time for boosting a relationship with a sibling, classmate, or neighbor. More involvement and improvement figure strongly.

Mars, your ruler, spent the second half of last year in your sign. Its extended stay was due to a retrograde cycle. While it may have left you feeling sluggish or hesitant, ideally, you’ve learned a lot about what makes you tick. You begin 2021 ready and willing to right your path, understand your desires, and confident about achieving your goals.

The emphasis is on more meaningful, streamlined, or business relationships in 2021. You’re taking your associations and friendships more seriously until March 2023. It’s a fabulous time, in fact, for forming a reliable connection or for quality business networking. With Saturn in supportive aspect to your sign, too, it’s a time of feeling more like you are on solid ground.

Financial ups and downs or uncertainties this year ultimately lead you to discover unique and creative ways to make and manage money.

Chiron continues its transit of your sign this year. Chiron illuminates the wounds you have accumulated over the years with regards to your self-esteem, which isn’t always comfortable. However, you get the chance to work on these issues and find ways to heal them. Openness to the process is crucial.

You’re far more serious about your ideals and causes, and you’re especially drawn to people who are like-minded–in fact, differences in values or opinions can be more glaring. You may feel that you have little time for friendships or associations that seem to distract you or that don’t feel right or productive. Connections formed this year can be quite permanent, or at least, long-standing–the “real deal!”

In many ways, 2021 is about learning to live your truth, and as you do, you feel healthier and more comfortable with yourself. Friendships benefit. You care more about who you have in your corner.

This Year in Love: Aries

2021 Love Horoscope for Aries

There aren’t many direct long-term influences on your love life again this year, dear Aries. This often means the year is status-quo–not a headline year for love, in other words.

However, there are many shorter-term influences on your love and relationship sectors that deserve attention, and these are outlined in the monthly and daily horoscopes. In this column, we’re looking at the bigger, longer-term influences, and while they’re not direct ones, some indirect influences are well worth noting.

A Chiron influence on your sign is a healing one, and it continues this year. Others look upon you with more respect, tolerance, and acceptance. You don’t feel the need to prove yourself, and that feels good. You have the chance to shine, largely because you are projecting yourself with self-respect and modesty at once. You are especially appealing and charming during this transit just by being yourself. Opportunities—both personal and professional—are likely to present themselves as a result. You are not looking for credit for what you do, which frees you up to get it anyhow! New friendships are likely to emerge this year–supportive ones.

As Chiron illuminates the wounds you have accumulated over the years with regards to your self-esteem, this may not be the most comfortable of transits at times, but you are given the chance to work on these issues and find ways to heal them. Openness to the process is crucial.

Sometimes, what’s no longer happening is notable, and for you, Saturn is no longer square to your Sun in 2021. For Aries born later in the sign, this influence left in December 2020, and it’s really a big “phew” for many. While it’s an ultimately useful transit for organizing your life, it feels heavy when it’s happening.

Essentially, you’re no longer wearing an overly serious manner, and you’re no longer feeling as much weight of responsibility. It’s true that Pluto is still in hard aspect to your sign, and Pluto is a very long-term aspect…cont’d

Special note:

Astrological transits continue in their cyclical ways no matter the current situation. They should always be adapted to what’s going on in your life in sensible ways. This applies at all times, but is particularly relevant now during this health crisis. During the very vital quarantines, if the planetary transits are suggesting it’s a great time to socialize, for example, it makes sense to adapt this to online socializing. Let’s be safe and protect one another through social distancing, if possible. Much love, Annie (March 18, 2020)

My heart goes out to all those experiencing difficulty. Love, Annie (April 1, 2020)

Boeing’s Boats

The Boeing Company is in most cases associated with aircraft production. However, Boeing was, and still is, also active in the production of missiles, spacecraft, train systems and boats. Boeing’s boats are in particular very interesting since they all were high-speed hydrofoil boats using Boeing’s aerospace technology.

Although Boeing eventually stopped with the development of new hydrofoil types, and although they were not very economical under operational conditions, these boats are interesting enough to have a closer look at.

Aqua-Jet (HST)

Boeing started from 1961 to 1966 experiments with a jet-powered catamaran . It was called the Aqua-Jet, but was also know as the HST (Hydrodynamic Test System) Between its ‘sponsons’ it had a continuous water tunnel for measuring of the hydrodynamic properties of a large number of hydrofoil profiles at different angels of attack and speed. It was powered by an Allison J-33 turbojet of 2087 kg thrust that gave it a maximum speed of more than 185 km/h. In 1963 the J-33 was replaced by a more powerful Pratt & Whitney J-48 turbojet of 2880 kg thrust. Top speed was increased to 215 km/h.

The Aqua-jet had a length of 11.58 m and a width of 5.16 m. Water displacement was six tons. Both sponsons had a single seat ‘cockpit’ in front.

The Aqua-Jet was operated on Lake Washington in Seattle in calm water conditions and during daylight and delivered invaluable data for basic knowledge of hydrofoil design for the next Boeing projects!

Based on the experiments with the Aqua-jet Boeing built in 1963 a larger jet-powered hydrofoil research vehicle under a U.S. Navy contract. It had a closed cabin and, just like its predecessor, catamaran-type sponsons. It had a weight of 16.7 tons and a length of 16.15 m.

It was intended to investigate various hydrofoil systems at very high speed and was capable to reach 160 km/h.

During a series of high speed test trials over the surface of the Puget Sound it capsized on 18 July 1963 at a speed of some 135 km/h. Pilot Vern Salisbury, co-pilot Pete Sias and Boeing employee Bob Hubbart could all three be recovered very quickly with only minor injuries. After the accident, the Fresh-1 was repaired and it successfully completed its acceptance trials for the Navy. The accident strongly influenced the US Navy’s decision to abandon its goal of a 100-knots hydrofoil and concentrated instead on achieving reliable 50 knots operations and all work to have a � knots’ operating hydrofoil boat was suspended. Fresh-1 was mothballed and never ran again!

Little Squirt

To investigate water jet propulsion on hydrofoil crafts, Boeing tested in the early to mid sixties a small 6 m long hydrofoil vessel of 2.5 tons. It was powered by a centrifugal pump with a flow rate of 13,627 l/min. and had a W-form hull.

The small craft accumulated about 110 hours of foil-borne operation on Lake Washington and Puget Sound, sometimes operating in 3-foot (90 cm) waves. The craft achieved speeds of up to 45 knots and established the technical basis for proceeding to the water jet propulsion designs of Boeing’s later military and commercial hydrofoil crafts

PCH-1 High Point

For operational evaluation by the U.S Navy Boeing built a hydrofoil vessel with designation PCH-1 where PCH stood for Patrol Craft Hydrofoil and named ‘High Point’ after the city in North Carolina.

For normal propulsion it used a General Motors 12V71 Diesel engine when it was ‘foilborne’ it used two Rolls Royce Proteus gas turbines to propel the shafts of the hydrofoils.
