No dictionary defines the word hydroplane.

 

Here is our definition: Hydroplane [idroplan] n. - A single-seat carbon hull with two pontoons and a safety capsule. It is propelled out of the water by a propeller, which is powered by a powerful 468 cubic inch supercharged engine in Grand Prix class.

 

In addition to this definition, there is a top speed of up to 225 km/h, mandatory left turns, frequent skids, risk of collision, sometimes zero visibility, and no braking system. Extreme sensations guaranteed, reflexes and judgment optional.

 

A hydroplane is an airplane with its wings removed. At high speed, the air enters the free space between the two pontoons - the tunnel - and lifts the boat. Only the propeller and the two pontoons are in contact with the water.
