TODAY’S PATENT- HYDROPLANE BOAT
The Hydroplane boat was invented by Michael Peters on the 4th of November 1980, bearing patent number US4231314A.
The present invention relates generally to hydroplane boats, and more particularly to hydroplane boats having a “deep-V” or a “stepped hull” design. There is a hydroplane boat having a V-shaped, stepped hull and continuous chines from stem to stern. Hydroplane boats are boats capable of skimming over water with the hull raised wholly or partly clear of the water surface. The “deep-V” design, generally accepted as the best design for performance in rough water, and the “stepped hull” design, offering the lowest drag and highest speeds among single hulled boats.
The objects of the invention are:
- to provide a hydroplane boat with good stability in rough waters.
- to provide a stepped-hull hydroplane boat with improved resistance to sudden deplaning.
- to provide a stepped-hull hydroplane boat with continuous chines.
