The present invention relates to hydroed on the rear ends of the hulls for steering plane ships and has for its prime object to the-craft. Numerals 7, 7, and 7 denote three provide a combination of three devices now spaced parallel coextensive pontoons of in common use, arranged in such a manner stream line configurationtapering forwardly so as to attain the most efficient results of. at their bows, to cutthrough the water and each, namely speed, .safety and. larger weight also tapering rearwardly at their stems to carrying capacity. 1 minimize friction with the water.

Referring to the drawings in detail, it will This hydroplane shipv when not in motionv be seen that numerals 5, 5 denote a pair of remains onthesurfaceof'the water supported spaced parallel coextensive hulls designed in by the pontoons. ,When the motors are cylindrical formation throughout the major started and thehydroplane ship goes into moportions of their lengths by having their tion, the wings take part of the weight off of bows tapering forwardly and their sterns the pontoons and as more speed is attained, 5 tapering rearwardly. Rudders 6 are mountthe less friction of the water will be. on the pontoons until a great speed is attained. At that speed, the lengths of the pontoons will maintain an even keel while the weight of the craft will prevent it from flying out of the water.
.The large rudders steer the hydroplane ship as an aeroplane is steered thereby eliminating a rudder structure in the'water. This hydroplane ship is designed for ocean service but of course may be used on any large body of water which ordinarily would be too rough to travel at a very fast rate of speed.
The important feature of the novel arrangement of well known devices is that the pon toons, when the craft is moving at its normal fastrate of speed, slide through the crest of thewaves therebydoing away with the pitching and rocking commonly experienced in ocean travel in ordinary ships. 7
It is thought thatthe construction, operation, utility and advantages'of this invention will now be quite apparent to those skilledin this art without a more detailed description thereof. 7 Y
The present embodiment of the invention has been described in considerable detail merely for the purposes of exemplification since in actual practice it will attain the features of advantage enumerated as desirable in the statement of the invention: and the above description. 7
' It is apparent that changes in the details of construction, and in the combination and arrangement of parts may be resorted to without departing from the spirit or scope of the invention as hereinafter claimed or sacrificing any-of its advantages. 7
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new is:
1. A hydroplane ship of the class described including, in combination, a plurality of elongated spaced parallel coextensive pontoons, a plurality of aeroplane wings disposed transversely between the pontoons, a plurality of hulls, means for supporting the hulls above the pontoons and between the pontoons, and aeroplane wings extending transversely between the hulls, comprising a plurality of covered girder frames disposed between the pontoons and the hull.
2. A hydroplane ship of the class described including, in combination, a plurality of elongated spaced parallel coextensive pontoons, a. plurality of aeroplane wings disposed transversely between the pontoons, a plurality of hulls, means for supporting the hulls above the pontoons and between the pontoons, and aeroplane wings extending transversely between the hulls, comprising a plurality of covered girder frames disposed between the pontoons and the hull, propeller motors mounted on the girder frames to the outer sides of the hydroplane ship.
3. A hydroplane ship of the class described including, in combination, a plurality of elongated spaced parallel coextensive pontoons, a plurality of aeroplane wings disposed transversely between the pontoons, a plurality of hulls, means for supporting the hulls above the pontoons and between the pontoons, and aeroplane wings extending transversely between the hulls, comprising a lurality of covered girder frames disposed tween the pontoons and the hull, propeller motors mounted on the girder frames to the outer sides of the hydroplane ship, rudders mounted on therear ends of the hulls.
4. A hydroplane ship of the class described including, in combination, a plurality of elongated spaced parallel coextensive pontoons, a plurality of aeroplane wings disposed transversely between the pontoons, a pluralityiof hulls, means for supportingthehulls above the pontoons and between the pontoons, and aeroplane wings extending transversely be tween the hulls, comprising a plurality of covered girder frames disposed between the pontoons and the hull, propeller motors mounted on the girderiframes to the outer sides of the hydroplane ship, rudders mount ed on the rear ends of the hulls, said pontoons tapering forwardly at the bows and tapering rearwardly at theirsterns and having their lower portions of keel like'formation.
In testimony whereof I aifix my signature.
