And there was Miss Supertest III.

Miss Supertest III was a Canadian hydroplane designed and built by Jeff Thompson that won the 1959 Detroit Memorial Regatta and the 1959, 1960 and 1961 Harmsworth Cup races—the only four races it ever entered. It was the only three-time Harmsworth Cup winner and the first non-U.S. winner in 39 years.

It was powered by a RR Griffon mark unknown.

It is currently on display in the Jet Aircraft Museum in London, Ontario.

Work in progress ::

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

The first Bras d'Or hydrofoil, the Saunders Roe designed and built hydrofoil test design for
the RCN that led to the FHE 400 that later carried the name.
