Title
(EN) A WATER CRAFT
(FR) NAVIRE
Abstract
(EN)
A water craft (77) is disclosed which includes a chassis portion (78), at least four water engaging means (30, 34, 38, 42) and interconnection means (94, 96, 98, 100, 102, 104, 106, 108, 110, 112, 114, 116, 118, 120, 122, 124, 126, 128, 130, 132). Each water engaging means is connected to the chassis portion (78) and is moveable in a substantially vertical direction relative to the chassis portion (78), and the interconnection means is arranged to functionally link the at least four water engaging means (30, 34, 38, 42) such that during use the chassis portion is encouraged to maintain an orientation which is substantially constant relative to the average plane of the water surface, even when the water surface is undulating and the water engaging means (30, 34, 38, 42) are not all disposed in the same plane.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un navire (77) comprenant une partie de châssis (78), au moins quatre moyens d'introduction dans l'eau (30, 34, 38, 42) et des moyens d'interconnexion (94, 96, 98, 100, 102, 104, 106, 108, 110, 112, 114, 116, 118, 120, 122, 124, 126, 128, 130, 132). Chaque moyen d'introduction dans l'eau est connecté à la partie de châssis (78) et peut bouger dans un sens sensiblement vertical par rapport à la partie de châssis (78), et les moyens d'interconnexion sont conçus pour relier de manière fonctionnelle au moins les quatre moyens d'introduction dans l'eau (30, 34, 38, 42) de manière que lors de l'utilisation, la partie de châssis soit encouragée à conserver une orientation sensiblement constante par rapport au plan moyen de la surface de l'eau, même lorsque la surface de l'eau est agitée et que les moyens d'introduction dans l'eau (30, 34, 38, 42) ne sont pas tous disposés selon le même plan.
