Title (EN) WATER VEHICLE STABILIZER AND ACCELERATOR
(FR) STABILISATEUR ET ACCELERATEUR DE VEHICULE AQUATIQUE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A water vehicle (10) has a stabilizer and accelerator device in the form of an elongated strip (20). The strip is designed to be sleek so that the water vehicle is not stiff and difficult or awkward tooperate. Yet, the strip sufficiently protrudes outwardly and downwardly from the bottom of the water vehicle to influence the flow of water across the water vehicle resulting in increased speed, control and stabilization of the water vehicle. The strip has a cross section that is triangular in shape, but with curved side walls. The strip grips the water during turns for greater control and maneuverability and accelerating out of the turn.
(FR)L'invention concerne un véhicule aquatique pourvu d'un dispositif stabilisateur et accélérateur sous la forme d'une bande allongée, laquelle est conçue de manière lisse pour que ledit véhicule ne soit ni rigide, ni difficile à manoeuvrer. Cependant, la bande, qui fait suffisamment saillie vers l'extérieur et vers le bas à partir du fond dudit véhicule, influence l'écoulement de l'eau le traversant, ce qui permet d'accroître sa vitesse, son contrôle et sa stabilisation. La bande a une section transversale triangulaire, mais ses parois latérales sont courbées. La bande adhère à l'eau dans les virages permettant un meilleur contrôle et maniabilité et une accélération à la sortie des virages.
