WATER SLED Filed April 18. 1931 Thomas Edward Bill/i8 mvzuron 7' BY m i O W ATTORNEYS Patented Aug. 16, 19,32
UNITED STATES PATENT orrlca mom anwaan nun. emu, nomoa, cnrroma warm sun Application fled April 18,
This invention relates to a water sled and has for the primary object, the provision of a device of the above stated character which is especially adaptable for swimmers orbathers, whereby they may be efiiciently floated on the water and may propel the device with the hands and arms through the water at a very rapid speed and obviate the employment of oars or paddles and further the device is capable of maintaining a number of people afloat, thereby providing a very eflicient life saving device.
Another object of this invention is the provision of a water sled of the above stated character which will be simple, durable and 2 ing description and accompanying drawing,
in which Figure 1 is a top plan view illustrating a watersled constructed in accordance w1th my invention.
Figure 2. is a plan view with the cover or deck removed from the hull.
Figure 3 is.a side elevation illustrat'ng the device.
Figure 4 is a fragmentary perspective view illustrating the reinforcing means for the hull.
Figure 5 is a transverse sectional view taken on the line 5-5 of Figure 1.
Figure 6 is a detail sectional view illustrating a vent device for the hull.
Referring in detail to the drawing, the numeral 1 indicates a hull including the sides 2 and bottom 3 which gradually taper from a point intermediate its ends toward each end to form the bow 4 and stern 5. The taper of the bow 4 is greater than the taper of the stern to facilitate the passage of the hull through the water.- As shown in Figure 3 the height of the sides is comparatively o small so that a person lyingupon the device 1931. Serial No. 531,193.
will be sup orted in close proximity to the surface of t e water whereby the person may employ the hands and arms to propel the hull through the water, using the arms in a paddling motion.
The bottom and sides of the hull are strengthened by a reinforcing structure 6 constructed from a plurality of longitudinal and transversely extending strips 7 and 8. The strips 7 and 8 are relativel s aced to-form the reinforcing structure 0 a s eleton formation givin the sides and bottom of the hull the deslred reinforcement and maintaining the weight of the device to a minimum.
A cover or deck 9 is positioned over the upper edges of the sides of the hull on which a person may lie and is suitably secured to the sides. structed from any material suitable for the purpose and if constructed from light weight metal, the deck or cover may be welded to the sides.
The hull and deck may be con- The deck 9 adjacent the bow of the hull is provided with an opening over which is positioned an apertured plate 10 having an internally threaded neck 11 extending through the opening of the deck and normalthe hull of water which may have leaked into I the hull during the use of the device.
One of the principal advantages of 'device is its light weight so that a person conveniently carry or handle the device and launch the same in case of emergency so that ly closed by a flanged and screw-threaded T persons in need of help within'ithe water may grasp the device and maintain themselves afloat. Due to the construction and shape- 0i the device its buoyancyis of amaximum capacity, therefore anun ber of personsresting or sitting uponthe/devme will be-niaintainedioo ferred embodiment of my invention, it will be understood that minor changes in construction, combination and arrangement of parts may be made without departing from the spirit and scope of my invention, as claimed.
Having thus descri ed my invention, what I claim is:
A water sled comprising a tapering bull including a bottom and narrow sides, a reinforcing structure located in the hull and en paging the bottom and sides and including ongitudinally and transversely arranged strips, a cover secured .to the upper edges of the sides for closing the hull and on which a person may lie and be supported in close proximity to the surface of the water to per mit pro ulsion of the hull through the water by t e legs and arms of the person, and means in the cover for venting the hull.
In testimony whereof I afiix my signature.
THOMAS EDWARD BLAKE.
