Reconsidering the SeaDart it might be the right idea as Delta's create an air cushion wich is hard to concour when landing and opposite for T-O. Hence a Delta ought to lift out of the water like the power-boats.
What went wrong with the SeaDart is possible that it was a rebuild of a functional landbased aircraft and If it had been built from scratch it might have been more successfull.
However, jet turbines are prone to problems with corrosion when exposed by water, and especially seawater. The problem have been exposed to several jet-powerboat constructors, hence jet engines are not the best choise for a hydroplane-fighteraircraft.
IMHO should the development take it's offspring in the propeller fitted svamp boats and it's strange to me that nobody have got the idea of aa delta hybrid swampboat when so many automobile-hybrid experiments have been done :-/
