Default Naples - Funicular and Jet Foil Question

What are they???? I looked them up, and got two very different descriptions of a funicular - one was a boxed-car on wire above the city and the other was a train that looked like it was a car on an old roller-coaster. And the description I got the jet-foil was that it was made by Boeing. So does that mean it's a sea plane, or just a fast boat (why can't they just say boat ride if that's the case). It's hard to book excursions when you don't know what they're talking about. Don't laugh if you see this posted on other boards -- this board's been pretty quiet lately.

A funicular is like a tram/train car that goes up a steep incline on a track with a pulley like system I thought. Google Hong Kong/funicular, I do believe you can see ont there...
