Hydrofoil Scheme to Capture H2 and Feed the Gas Into the Engines for Propulsion

When two atmospheres of various density come together, at that point, there is a transitional boundary layer, a place where the molecules are interacting, recombining, a place where ionic bonding is taking place or coming apart. It just so happens here on Earth that two-thirds of our surface on this planet is covered with water. And where that ocean water meets the air, there is a boundary layer where H2O molecules are unhooking themselves.

In this place in time there is an abundance of H2, a molecule which can be used as fuel to propel a human made devices, it might be used for pumps on oilrigs, power to run the generators on a cruise ship, or even to run a high-speed skimming vessel, speedboat, hydrofoil, or floatplane. Now then, how would you go about designing such a system to collect, trap, or gather up that H2 which is three times more prevalent in that boundary layer than in the normal atmosphere? Below are some thoughts on a design I recently came up with;

We use hydrofoil strakes we design a shovel which bunches up the water, only at the surface, which rides up and down along the hydrofoil strake as the strake penetrates each wave moving forward. The shovel bunches up the water at the beginning of the wake, and we collect the air from just in front of the wake where it is calm, then we don't have to worry as much about the water vapor, however there will be some which is collected.

Okay so, we use a Bernoulli trick and allow a turbine style, jet engine shaped device run from relative wind to suck in the air, but allow the water vapor, much heavier to blow around the intake, just as the sand blows around a helicopter jet engine, using Boeing's design for the Apache. Then tubes are attached to the hydrofoil strake taking the H2 up to the engines, along the way and water vapor left that inadvertently makes it into the system or is collected; is discharged using various tricks of physics such as membranes, or a interior strakes in the tube causing the H2 to flow in a spiral, thus the water molecules are forced outward.

This is one concept that human design engineers "could" explore, I think it's workable, but if it isn't it certainly has other uses, doesn't it; such as, environmental remediation or a spinning device to mix paint, with special coatings for instance. Remember it's all just chemistry, physics, and fluid dynamics, nothing really all that special, still abundantly useful with many applications. Just thinking out loud, I am sure I will have more ideas to pitch soon, as I see this concept as rather intriguing.

Of course, this is only one design, there could be endless designs, some more efficient and feasible than others of course. At some point mankind needs to harness this energy, collect it, and use it because it is efficient, because it is there, and because it is free - so why not? Indeed I hope you will please consider all this, and if you have any ideas, concepts, or research along this line of thinking. I ask that you shoot me an e-mail.
