Ron Barrett, Director of Special Projects for ADSIL, evaluating the application of a hydrofoil ATC-Glass performance coating on the world's speed record holder for trimaran hydrofoils, Dr. Sam Brandfield's "Scat" in Key West, Florida.

"SCAT" is a 37 foot long and 37 foot wide hydrofoil sailing trimaran. This vessel is the result and the conclusion of prolonged and extensive testing of it's prerunner the foiler EIFO built at Multihull Technologies, Inc. in Key West, Florida. The owner Prof. Sam Bradfield (also the designer of this hydrofoil system) and his company "HYDROSAIL INC." decided to build a newer and bigger version of his hydrofoil system in order to test it also in offshore conditions.
