The basic hull design of most hydroplanes has remained relatively unchanged since the 1950s: two sponsons in front, one on each side of the bow; behind the wide bow, is a narrower, mostly rectangular section housing the driver, engine, and steering equipment. The aft part of the hydroplane is supported in the water by the lower half of the propeller, which is designed to operate semi-submerged at all times. The goal is to keep as little of the hydroplane in contact with the water as possible, as water is much denser than air, and so exerts more drag on the hydro than air does. Essentially the boat 'flies' over the surface of the water rather than actually traveling through it.
