FOLDABLE BOAT Filed Feb. 20, 1923 Quorum;

JULIUS N. CLEMMER, 01E OMAHA, NEBRASKA.
FOLDABLE BOAT.
Application filed February 20, 1923. Serial No. 620,177.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that JULIUS N. CnEMMnR, a citizen of the United States, residing at Omaha, in the county of Douglas and State of Nebraska, has invented certain new and useful Improvements in Foldable Boats, of which the following is a specification, reference being had therein to the accompanytransported on the running board of an automobile.
A further object is to proportion the sections of the boat whereby the bow section may be folded to a position within the midship section, and'the stern section folded to a position where it will receive the other sections of the boat. Also to form the boat sections in such a manner whereby upon any of the sections springing a leak the other sections will not be flooded.
A further object is to provide special hinges for connecting the sections together, which hinges allow the sections to receive each. other, and to provide apertured lugs carried by the adjacent ends of the boat sections, which lugs register when the boat is in extended position and receive securing With the above and other objects in view the invention resides in the combination and arrangement of parts as hereinafter set forth, shown 'in the drawing, described and claimed, it being understood that changes in the precise embodiment of the invention may be made within the scope of what is claimed without departing from the spirit of the invention.
In the drawing:
Figure 1 is a top plan view of the boat.
Figure 2 is aside elevation of the boat.
Figure 3 is a vertical longitudinal sectional view through the boat, showing the same folded.
Figure 4 is a detail side elevation of the adjacent ends of boat sections, showing the lugs carried thereby.
Referring to the drawing, the numeral 1 designates the bow section of the boat, 2 the midship section, and 3 the stern section.
The bow section 1 is smaller than the chamber 2 of the section 2, and is adapted to be folded to a position where it will be received in the chamber 2 as shown in Figure 3, after which the stern section 3 is folded to a position where it will receive in the chamber 3 thereof the folded sections 1 and 2, as shown in Figure 3. The sections 1, 2 and 3 may be formed from any kind of material, however they are provided with transversely disposed walls 4, which engage each other, and which,in case of puncture of any of the sections, water will not flow into adjacent sections, thereby allowing the boat to be rowed or otherwise propelled to the shore. The sections 1 and 2 and 3 are connected together by means of hinges 5, which hinges are secured at 6 in the bottoms of the sections 2 and 3. Hinges 5 comprise upwardly xtending sections 7, which are hingedly connected at 8 adjacent the bottoms of the sections, hingedly connected sections 9, which are hingedly connected at 10 to the upper ends of the sections 7 the sections 7 and 9 when extended being substantially the length as the height of the walls 4, and are provided with angularly disposed portions 11, which engage over the upper sides of the walls 4, as clearly shown in Figure 2. The angularly disposed ortions 11, are in turn hingedly connecte at 12 to brackets 13 secured to the inner sides of walls 4 of the section 2 and the section 1, therefore it will be seen by referring to Figure 2, that when the boat sections are extended, the walls 4 will engage each other and the hinges will allow'freedom of movement during the folding operation for the sections to be positioned within each other as shown in Figure 3.
The adjacent ends of the sections 1, 2 and 3 are provided with apertured lugs 14, which lugs, when the sections are in abutting engagement as shown in Figure 2, register and receive securing pins 15, which securing pins hold the sections rigidly together. The pins 15, when the bolt is folded. are removed.
The boat may be propelled in any suitable manner, such for instance as by an engine or by oars, and removable seats of any type may beused.
From the above it will be seen that a foldable boat is provided, which is simple in construction, and-constructed in such a manner that the sections thereof may be folded onto each other in such a manner that the boat may be formed into a. compact package for transportation, particularly on the running board of an automobile.
The invention having been set forth what is claimed as new and useful is A boat comprising a bow section, a midship section and a stern section, said sections having their adjacent ends provided with transversely disposed walls adapted to engage each other, hinges pivotally connected in the bottoms of the midship see- I tion and the stern section, said hinges extending upwardly and terminating in angularly disposed portions hingedly connect ed to brackets carried by the midship section and the bow section and hinged at a point above the walls, the upwardly exsignature.
