Rick,

I take it the front foil pivots no? Also what do the cables do? Are they running rigging or standing? I'm quite interested in the workings of this as well as the aquaskipper:

I'm currently designing a boat for kite/human power, hopefully to use in the WaterTribe Everglades challenge, and am thinking of using an oscillating foil in lieu of paddling for the human powered part. I'm actually thinking it may be possible to have a foil mechanism that doubles as a means of propulsion when the wind is calm and a flying foil when under sail. Think I could take a look next time I'm down your way?
