ROUNDABOUT.

Application filed May 25, 1925. Serial No. 32,658.

This invention relates to improvements in amusement devices, and is more particularly adapted to a roundabout.

One of the important objects of the present invention is to provide a roundabout which includes a plurality of boats, the latter being adapted to move in a circular manner, in a body of water.

One of the important objects of the present invention is to provide a. marine round about, which will afford great amusement to the passengers of the boat, the roundabout being of such construction as to prevent any possibility of the occupants of the boat being injured during the operation of the amusement device.

A further object is to provide a marine roundabout of the above mentioned character, which is simple in construction, inexpensive, strong and durable, and further well adapted for the purpose for which it is designed.

Other objects and advantages of the invention will become apparent during the course of the following detailed description.

In the accompanying drawing, forming a part of this application, and in which like reference characters designate corresponding parts throughout the several views:

Figure 1 is a top plan view of my improved roundabout, and

Figure 2 is a side elevation showing one pair of opposed boats.

In the drawing, wherein for the'purpose of illustration is shown the preferred embodiment of my invention, the numeral 1 designates the base, the same being in the form of a hollow cylindrical member and is anchored in a body of water through the medium of the anchoring rod 2. A vertical shaft 3 extends upwardly through the top of the hollow cylindrical base 1, the lower end thereof resting in a stationary bearing 4, which is arranged in the bottom of the hollow base, the intermediate portion of the shaft being journaled in a suitable bearing 5, which is disposed in a central opening provided therefor in the top of the hollow cylindrical base. The hub 6 is secured on the upper end of the shaft 3 and extending radially from the hub are the horizontally disposed arms 7 Any number of these arms may be provided, as is desired, and in the present instance, I have shown four of'such arms, the same being arranged in pairs. An annular plate 8 is formed on the upper portion of. the hub.

A boat 9 is adapted to be supported by the outer end of each of the radially extending arms 11, the boats being suspended from the ends of the arms through the medium of the flexible ropes or cables 10. The free ends of the suspension cables are secured to the respective ends of each boat, as is more clearly illustrated at 11, in Figure 1 of the drawings, and the intermediate portion of each of theflexible members are secured to the sleeve 12 which is rotatably supported on the outer end of each of the radially extending arms.

A bevelled gear 13 is carried by the lower portion of the vertical shaft 3 and meshing therewith is the pinion 14 supported on the end of the drive shaft 15 of a motor 16, the latter being of any well known construction, and being placed within the hollow cylindrical base 1. The motor provides a means whereby the shaft 3 will be rotated, through the medium of the gearing heretofore described, and when the shaft 3 rotates, the boats 9 which are partially immersed in the g ater will revolve around the stationary ase.

Access to the interior of the hollow base is provided through the opening 17 provided in the top of the hollow base, and the latter 18. The top of the hollow cylindrical base forms a deck or platform and a rail 19 extends around the edge thereof.

A marine roundabout of the above mentioned character will afford amusement to the occupant of the boat and the device is of such a construction as to prevent any possibility of the occupant being injured when the roundabout is in operation.

WVhile I have shown the preferred embodiment of my invention, it is to be understood that various changes in the size, shape, and arrangement of parts may be resorted to if desired.

What I claim is:

In a roundabout, a hollow base, means for anchoring the same in a body of water, a vertical shaft having its lower end journaled in a bearing in the bottom of the hollow base, the upper end of the shaft extending upwardly through the top of the base, a motor in the hollow base for actuating the shaft, a

hub secured on the upper end of the shaft, a plurality of arms extending radially from said hub, a sleeve rotatably mounted onthe outer end of each arm, a series of boats, a flexible member secured at its lntermediate portion to each of said sleeves and at its of the respective arms whereby the boats may be immersed in the Water, said boats adapted to revolve around, the hollow base when the shaft is rotated, the sleeves permitting the oscillatory movement of the boats.

In testimony whereof I affix my signature.

CHRISTOPHER J. WIIG.
