Now That's Different !

 

One of the first gasoline powerboats to hold The World Speed Record was, the HD-4 or Hydrodome number 4.

HD-4 was an early research hydrofoil watercraft developed by the scientist Alexander Graham Bell. Designed and built at the Bell Boatyard on Bell's Beinn Bhreagh estate near Baddeck, Nova Scotia.

Bell and his associate Frederick W. "Casey" Baldwin studied the work of the Italian inventor Enrico Forlanini and began testing models based on his hydrofoil designs. Bell with his chief engineer Baldwin began hydrofoil experiments in the summer of 1908. During Bell's world tour of 1910–1911, Bell and Baldwin met with Forlanini in Italy, where they rode in his hydrofoil boat over Lake Maggiore. Baldwin described it as being as smooth as flying.

On returning to Bell's large laboratory and boatyard at his Beinn Bhreagh estate near Baddeck, Nova Scotia, they experimented with a number of designs, culminating in HD-4. In 1913, Dr. Bell hired Walter Pinaud, a Sydney yacht designer and builder as well as the proprietor of Pinaud's Yacht Yard in Westmount to work on the pontoons of HD-4. Pinaud soon took over the Bell Boatyard at Beinn Bhreagh. Pinaud's experience in boat-building enabled him to make useful design changes to HD-4. After the First World War, work began again on HD-4. Bell's report to the U.S. Navy permitted him to obtain two 350 brake horsepower (260 kW) Liberty V-12 engines in July 1919.

On September 9, 1919, on the Bras d'Or Lakes, at Baddeck, HD-4 set a world marine speed record of 70.86 miles per hour (114.04 km/h), that stood for almost a year until being beaten by Gar Wood in Miss America.
