Hydrofoils fastest ships sails or engines @320mph
Kite sails fastest sail @126mph

“Bubble Wrap” or "Metal Styrofoam" air sacks has been commercialized & patented 15yr
produced 3lbs/hr/sqft ~0.5T/dy @mine site tank
Problem:
US Government has decreed $78T/yr cargo carried by 5000 foreign built (within last 5 years) & foreign flagged ships a USA National Security Priority & has funded $16B to revitalize US shipyards to produce competing ships cost effectively carrying cargo with less CO2 emissions despite rising fuel costs.
Largest/most efficient cargo ships can only go to 16 ports worldwide.
10 of 55 US commercial ports are being upgrade...

10 of 55 US commercial ports are being upgraded at $10B/port.
Failure to upgrade relegates ports to economical decline.
Solution:
pitek.us/Patents.html & trade secret electroplating process ~0.5T/dy production @mine site & 15yr in electronic stencils allows 60+mph Hydrofoil Sailing Ship with Bubble Wrap/Metal Styrofoam @10lb/cuft hull density to be carried on 130ft struts in 42ft waves of Gale Storms on NASA approved hydrofoils & propelled by kite sails/engines
20mph surface winds are 70mph @3000ft saving $60K/dy fuel
1% weight of conventional hull
Exit:
Year 5 General Dynamics will buyout Hydrofoil Sailing Ship factory @$600M because current hull (slower & higher overhead) produced by GD costs @$700M vs @$20M
Independent validation by Swiggart & Agin w/MIT @$30K + Gov’t money app
Former Gn'l Counsel Marine Admin assist/intercede $100M Gov’t money app @$100K
Design/Simulation is by inventor
Prototyping of 60'x60'x30' hull @$2.5M
Year 1 Marine Admin releases $100M @87.5%LTV for factory & 3 ships for hauling
Prototype & production sells the deal
Potential Market:
5000 ships move 0.4M TEU worth $78T/yr in Ultra Large Container Ship to “non-direct hubs” with “lay overs”
We replace most over 20yr patent life & move 1.0M TEU by direct “non-stop” to ALL PORTS WORLD WIDE expanding markets here & abroad
Competition:
Top 25 shipping companies account for ~80% of 80,000 total ship market
Competitor’s strengths are established weld-grind 1/2" steel plate tech & customer relations

Recommendations

Los Angeles Port Authority and Long Beach Port Authority accelerator program PortTech.org has written very positive letter of support because concept solves the cargo handling problem and at the same enriches America as a whole.
