    Those Horseshoe Rudders you refer to would most likely have been on the Levi Drive equipped Virgin Atlantic challenger.

    They make for very good handling at speed and seemed to me to do exactly what it said on the tin as it was only the very bottom of the blade in the water once on the plane and it effectively gave you four rudders and directed the massive jet of water produced by the surface piercing props.

    Yep, that is it. Not what I thought originally, then I found some old photos of her on the hill.

    Maybe I was remembering a bad dream; upside-down Tempest.

    For those that subscribe or read on line. PBb, Issue 160, has a nice rite up on installing a stern foil (vane) on a poor preforming boat. Results were great.
    It re-kindles my late thoughts for a bolt on kit on older boats.
